Pat Shelley wrote these out for me, she forgot to note that.
They are good autumnal quotes for this turn of the season, I think.
1. The fairest thing I leave behind is sunlight,
the shining stars and the full moon’s face,
and also ripe cucumbers, and apples and pears.
2. Yet they never persuaded your heart.
3. Learning from the tales of Admetos, my friend, love the brave
but avoid cowards, knowing the gratitude of cowards is small.
4. Watch for a scorpion, my friend, under every stone.
5. You who look lovely from the windows--
a virgin face, but newly wed below.
