δια τι εστι δει σε τεμνειν τα ανθη;
συγνωμην ἔχε. ἥμαρτον γὰρ. ἐδει γαρ με γραψαι το "ταχέως δὲ δήσει με τέμνειν τὰ χλωρά."

δει δη με τεμνει μεν τα χλωρα, επιχεειν δε το υδωρ επι των ἀνθῶν.

και συ? ἔχεις χλωρα? ἔχεις ανθη? ἀγρὸν ἔχεις?

ιθι πολλα χαιρων, φιλε Δαιυιδ!
οὐ μανθάνω γράφειν, ἀλλὰ γράφω τοῦ μαθεῖν.

ἔγραψεν ὁ Μαρκος


συγνωμην ἔχε. ἥμαρτον γὰρ. ἐδει γαρ με γραψαι το "ταχέως δὲ δήσει με τέμνειν τὰ χλωρά."

δει δη με τεμνει μεν τα χλωρα, επιχεειν δε το υδωρ επι των ἀνθῶν.

και συ? ἔχεις χλωρα? ἔχεις ανθη? ἀγρὸν ἔχεις?
βοήθησον-
«συγνωμην» ου οιος τ` ειμι ευρειν. συ + γνωμη ="together understanding"?
«επιχεειν» ου οιος τ` ειμι ευρειν
«χλωρα» = το χρωμα μηλου?? (ie yellow/green)
Please can I have some hints in English, because at the moment, understanding what you are saying is beyond my current level of Ancient Greek.


εχθες, γραψας, εξηλθον, επηρθσα το ιματιον αλλα η ηλιος ελαμπε.
τημερον αυθις λαμπει ηλιος. θερμοτερον εστι.

{συγγνώμην ἔχε = literally, "have forgiveness=forgive me, I'm sorry"

ἐπιχέω I pour over, sometimes I think the infinite contracts, ἐπιχέειν=ἐπιχεῖν

χλωρά literally "green things"= grass. τέμνω τὰ χλωρά I mow the lawn.}

ου μεν εχω χλωρα εχω δε ανθη.
ου μεν εχω αγρον εχω δε μικρον κηπον.

αρτι νυν νεφελαι καλυπτουσι τον ουρανον αλλα ομως ο ηλιος διατεμνουσι

I'm sorry but again I'm stumped by one of your words: κύενος
the closest I can find is κῠέω - pregnant
κυμα, wave is the closest that I can get that has a meaning that could fit the context

Don't apologize. It's my fault again, this was typo. I meant κύανος. σήμερον κύανος ὁ οὐρανός. The sky is blue today. I sometimes think that my Greek is as bad as my English.

As long as I'm English, there is a major weather story today here in Denver, Colorado. High of 60 today, tomorrow high of 20, low of 5 with 6-12 inches of snow. April is the cruelest month.

σήμερον μὲν φλἐγει ὁ ἥλιος. ἐπαύριον δὲ οἱ σοφοὶ λέγουσιν ὅτι πολλὴ νιφὰς πεσοῦνται ἐξ οὐρανοῦ.

We keep talking about the weather here, but we don't DO anything about it. λόγοι μὲν, ἔργα δ' οὐ!
οὐ μανθάνω γράφειν, ἀλλὰ γράφω τοῦ μαθεῖν.

τήμερον μὲν οὖν λεῦκα πάντα. νίφει γάρ σφόδρα. μάλιστα δὲ ψυχρός ἐστιν. περιπατῶν ἐν ταῖς νιφᾶσι, φρίγω δή. ὁ δὲ υἱός μου, ποιήσας σφαίρας ἐκ τῶν νιφάδων, βάλλει τὸν ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ.
