ὦ δείλαιε τὺ Θύρσι, τί τοι πλέον, εἰ καταταξεῖς
δάκρυσι διγλήνως ὦπας ὀδυρόμενος;
οἴχεται ἁ χίμαρος, τὸ καλὸν τέκος, οἴχετ᾽ ἐς ᾄδαν:
τραχὺς γὰρ χαλαῖς ἀμφεπίαξε λύκος:

αἱ δὲ κύνες κλαγγεῦντι. τί τοι πλέον, ἁνίκα τήνας
ὀστίον οὐδὲ τέφρα λείπετ᾽ ἀποιχομένας;

— Paton edition

Ah ! poor Thyrsis, what use crying out thy two
eyes ? The kid is gone, the little dear ; it is gone
to Hades, for the cruel wolf caught it in his claws.
The dogs bay, but what use is that now when it is
gone, and neither bone nor dust of it left ?
