What Love would say if he were in love

Texts

τίνας ἂν εἴποι λόγους Ἔρως ἐρῶν
τίς πυρὶ πῦρ ἐδάμασσε; τίς ἔσβεσε λαμπάδι πυρσόν;
τίς κατ᾽ ἐμῆς νευρῆς ἑτέρην ἐτανύσσατο νευρήν;
καινὸς Ἔρως κατ᾽ Ἔρωτος ἐμῷ μένει ἰσοφαρίζει

— Paton edition

Who is this that overcame fire by fire, who quenched
a torch with a torch ? Who drew another bow against
mine ? A new Love by my might contends on equal
terms with Love.
