Oὔ moi mélei tὰ Gýgeō

Language: Greek (Ελληνικά)

Oὔ moi mélei tὰ Gýgeō
toῦ Sardíōn ἄnaktos,
oὐd᾽ eἷlé pṓ me zῆlos,
oὐdὲ fthonῶ tyránnois.
ἐmoὶ mélei mýroisin
katavréchein ὑpī́nīn,
ἐmoὶ mélei ῥódoisin
katastéfein kárīna·
tὸ sī́meron mélei moi,
tὸ d᾽ aὔrion tís oἶden?
ὡs oὖn ἔt᾽ eὔdi᾽ ἔstin,
kaὶ pῖne kaὶ kýveye
kaὶ spénde tῶi Lyaíōi,
mὴ noῦsos ἤn tis ἔlthīi
légīi se mīdὲ pínein.
