τίπτε με τὴν ἀνέμοισιν ἁλώσιμον, ἠλεὲ τέκτον,
τήνδε πίτυν τεύχεις νῆα θαλασσοπόρον,
οὐδ᾽ οἰωνὸν ἔδεισας; ὅ τοι Βορέης μ᾽ ἐδίωξεν
ἐν χθονί: πῶς ἀνέμους φεύξομαι ἐν πελάγει;

— Paton edition

Why, foolish carpenter, dost thou make of me, the
pine-tree that am the victim of the winds, a ship to
travel over the seas, and dreadest not the omen ?
Boreas persecuted me on land ; so how shall I escape
the winds at sea ?
