by Anyte of Tegea (flourished early 3rd century BCE)

For a fountain
Language: English  after the Greek (Ελληνικά) 
O wanderer, rest your tired limbs under this elm. 
The breeze murmurs in the light green branches; 
Drink a cool draught from the spring. 
This restingplace is dear to wayfarers in the hot summer.
