μηκέτι τις πτήξειε πόθου βέλος: ἰοδόκην γὰρ
εἰς ἐμὲ λάβρος Ἔρως ἐξεκένωσεν ὅλην.
μὴ πτερύγων τρομέοι τις ἐπήλυσιν ἐξότε γάρ μοι
λὰξ ἐπιβὰς στέρνοις πικρὸν ἔπηξε πόδα,


ἀστεμφής, ἀδόνητος ἐνέζεται, οὐδὲ μετέστη,
εἰς ἐμὲ συζυγίην κειράμενος πτερύγων.

— Paton edition

Let none fear any more the darts of desire ; for raging Love has emptied his whole quiver on me. Let none dread the coming of his wings ; for ever since he hath set his cruel feet on me, trampling on my heart, there he remains unmoved and unshaken and departs not, for on me he hath shed the feathers of his two wings.
