Λῆς, ποτὶ τᾶν Μοισᾶν, διδύμοις αὐλοῖσιν ἀεῖσαι
ἁδὺ τί μοι; κἠγὼ πακτίδ᾽ ἀειράμενος
ἀρξεῦμαί τι κρέκειν: ὁ δὲ βωκόλος ἐγγύθεν ᾀσεῖ
Δάφνις, κηροδέτῳ πνεύματι μελπόμενος.

ἐγγὺς δὲ στάντες λασιαύχενος ἔνδοθεν ἄντρου
Πᾶνα τὸν αἰγιβάταν ὀρφανίσωμες ὕπνου.

— Paton edition

By the Muses, wilt thou play something sweet to
me on the double flute? and I will lift up my harp
and begin a tune, and the herd Daphnis shall stand
close by and make music with the breath of the
wax-joined pipe. Standing there hard by, inside the
cave shaggy with hanging greenery, let us bereave
Pan the goat-mounter of sleep.
