Φωσφόρε, μὴ τὸν Ἔρωτα βιάζεο, μηδὲ διδάσκου,
Ἄρεϊ γειτονέων, νηλεὲς ἦτορ ἔχειν
ὡς δὲ πάρος, Κλυμένης ὁρόων Φαέθοντα μελάθρῳ,
οὐ δρόμον ὠκυπόδην εἶχες ἐπ᾽ ἀντολίης,

οὕτω μοι περὶ νύκτα, μόγις ποθέοντι φανεῖσαν,
ἔρχεο δηθύνων ὡς παρὰ Κιμμερίοις.

— Paton edition

Ο star of the morning, press not hard on Love, nor because thou movest near to Mars learn from him to be pitiless. But as once when thou sawest the Sun in Clymene's chamber, thou wentest more slowly down to the west, so on this night that I longed for, scarce hoping, tarry in thy coming, as in the Cimmerian land.
