Τὰν ἅλα τὰν γλαυκὰν ὅταν ὥνεμος ἀτρέμα...

Language: Greek (Ελληνικά)

Τὰν ἅλα τὰν γλαυκὰν ὅταν ὥνεμος ἀτρέμα βάλλῃ, 
τὰν φρένα τὰν δειλὰν ἐρεθίζομαι, οὐδ̓ ἔτι μοι γᾶ 
ἐστὶ φίλα, ποθίει δὲ πολὺ πλέον ἁ μεγάλα μ̓ ἅλς. 
ἀλλ̓ ὅταν ἀχήσῃ πολιὸς βυθός, ἁ δὲ θάλασσα 
5κυρτὸν ἐπαφρίζῃ, τὰ δὲ κύματα μακρὰ μεμήνῃ, 
ἐς χθόνα παπταίνω καὶ δένδρεα, τὰν δ̓ ἅλα φεύγω, 
γᾶ δέ μοι ἀσπαστά, χἀ δάσκιος εὔαδεν ὕλα, 
ἔνθα καὶ ἢν πνεύσῃ πολὺς ὥνεμος, ἁ πίτυς ᾄδει. 
ἦ κακὸν ὁ γριπεὺς ζώει βίον, ᾧ δόμος ἁ ναῦς, 
10καὶ πόνος ἐστὶ θάλασσα, καὶ ἰχθύες ἁ πλάνος ἄγρα. 
αὐτὰρ ἐμοὶ γλυκὺς ὕπνος ὑπὸ πλατάνῳ βαθυφύλλῳ, 
καὶ παγᾶς φιλέοιμι τὸν ἐγγύθεν ἆχον ἀκούειν, 
ἃ τέρπει ψοφέοισα τὸν ἀγρικόν, οὐχὶ ταράσσει.
