Translation by Eduard Mörike (1804 - 1875)

Verschiedener Krieg
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Greek (Ελληνικά) 
Du singest Thebens Kriege,
Und jener Trojas Schlachten,
Ich meine Niederlagen.
Kein Reiterheer, kein Fußvolk
Schlägt mich, und keine Flotte.
Ein andres Heer bekriegt mich --
Aus jenem Augenpaare.
