κατθάνοισα δὲ κείσῃ οὐδέ ποτα

Language: Aeolic Greek

κατθάνοισα δὲ κείσῃ οὐδέ ποτα
   μναμοσύνα σέθεν
ἔσσετ' οὐδὲ †ποκ'†ὔστερον. οὐ
   γὰρ πεδέχῃς βρόδων
τῶν ἐκ Πιερίας. ἀλλ' ἀφάνης
   κἠν Ἀίδα δόμῳ
φοιτάσεις πεδ' ἀμαύρων νεκύων
   ἐκπεποταμένα

Erstorben wirst du liegen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Aeolic Greek

Erstorben wirst du liegen,
Und niemand wird dein denken,
Niemand zu allen Zeiten:
Denn nie hast du die Rosen 
Pieriens berühret. 
Unscheinbar wirst du müssen 
In Todes Wohnung gehen,
Und niemand wird dich anseh'n 
Im Heer der dunkeln Schatten.
