On a Suburban Pleasaunce

Texts

ὕδασι καὶ κήποισι καὶ ἄλσεσι καὶ Διονύσῳ
καὶ πόντου πλήθω γείτονος εὐφροσύνῃ.
τερπνὰ δέ μοι γαίης τε καὶ ἐξ ἁλὸς ἄλλοθεν ἄλλος
καὶ γριπεὺς ὀρέγει δῶρα καὶ ἀγρονόμος.

τοὺς δ᾽ ἐν ἐμοὶ μίμνοντας ἢ ὀρνίθων τις ἀείδων,
ἢ γλυκὺ πορθμήων φθέγμα παρηγορέει.

— Paton edition

I am rich in waters, gardens, groves, vineyards,
and the generous gifts of the neighbouring sea.
Both the fisherman and the husbandman offer me
pleasing presents from sea and land, and those who
rest in me are soothed either by the song of birds or
the sweet call of the ferryman.
