οὐκέτι συρίγγων νόμιον μέλος ἀγχόθι ταύτας
ἁρμόζῃ βλωθρᾶς, Θηρίμαχε, πλατάνου:
οὐδέ σευ ἐκ καλάμων κερααὶ βόες ἁδὺ μέλισμα
δέξονται, σκιερᾷ πὰρ δρυῒ κεκλιμένου.

ὤλεσε γὰρ πρηστήρ σε κεραύνιος: αἱ δ᾽ ἐπὶ μάνδραν
ὀψὲ βόες νιφετῷ σπερχόμεναι κατέβαν.

— Paton edition

No longer, Therimachus, do you play your
shepherds' tunes on the pipes near this crooked-
leaved plane. Nor shall the horned kine listen
again the sweet music you did make, reclining
by the shady oak. The burning bolt of heaven destroyed
you, and they at nightfall came down the hill to
their byre driven by the snow.
