On a Garden by the Sea

Texts

πόντος ὑποκλύζει χθονὸς ἕδρανα: πλωτὰ δὲ χέρσου
νῶτα θαλασσαίοις ἄλσεσι τηλεθάει.
ὡς σοφὸς ὅστις ἔμιξε βυθὸν χθονί, φύκια κήποις,
Νηιάδων προχοαῖς χεύματα Νηρεΐδων:

— Paton edition

The sea washes terra firma, and the expanse of the
dry land is navigable and blooms with marine foliage.
How skilled was he who mingled the deep with the
land, sea-weed with garden plants, the floods of
the Nereids with the founts of the Naiads.
