Ἀμπαύσει καὶ τῇδε θοὸν πτερὸν ἱερὸς ὄρνις,
τᾶσδ᾽ ὑπὲρ ἁδείας ἑζόμενος πλατάνου:
ὤλετο γὰρ Ποίμανδρος ὁ Μάλιος, οὐδ᾽ ἔτι νεῖται
ἰξὸν ἐπ᾽ ἀγρευταῖς χευάμενος καλάμοις.

— Paton edition

Here too the birds of heaven shall rest their
swift wings, alighting on this sweet plane-tree.
For Poemander of Melos is dead, and comes here
no longer, his fowling canes smeared with lime.
