Fragment 55

To a wealthy woman who had no culture
You shall lie there, woman, when you are dead,
and no one shall ever remember you,
or long for you, hereafter,
for you have no share in the roses from Pieria;
but out of sight, in Hades' hall,
you shall wander among the nameless dead,
when you have flown from here.
