Not Yet

Homer, Odyssey 10.174-177 (tr. Peter Green):
Not yet, friends, for all our grief, shall we go down
to Hades' realm before our destined day arrives!
So come, while there's still food and drink in our swift ship
let's think about eating, not waste away from hunger!

ὦ φίλοι, οὐ γάρ πω καταδυσόμεθ᾽ ἀχνύμενοί περ
εἰς Ἀίδαο δόμους, πρὶν μόρσιμον ἦμαρ ἐπέλθῃ·
ἀλλ᾽ ἄγετ᾽, ὄφρ᾽ ἐν νηὶ θοῇ βρῶσίς τε πόσις τε,
μνησόμεθα βρώμης, μηδὲ τρυχώμεθα λιμῷ.
