σιγάτω λάσιον Δρυάδων λέπας, οἳ τ᾽ ἀπὸ πέτρας
κρουνοί, καὶ βληχὴ πουλυμιγὴς τοκάδων,
αὐτὸς ἐπεὶ σύριγγι μελίζεται εὐκελάδῳ Πάν,
ὑγρὸν ἱεὶς ζευκτῶν χεῖλος ὑπὲρ καλάμων

αἱ δὲ πέριξ θαλεροῖσι χορὸν ποσὶν ἐστήσαντο
Ὑδριάδες Νύμφαι, Νύμφαι Ἁμαδρυάδες.

— Paton edition

Let the cliff clothed in greenery of the Dryads
keep silence, and the fountains that fall from the
rock, and the confused bleating of the ewes newly
lambed ; for Pan himself plays on his sweet-toned
pipe, running his pliant lips over the joined reeds,
and around with their fresh feet they have started
the dance, the Nymphs, Hydriads, and Hamadryads.
