Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  A Victorian Anthology, 1837–1895.  1895.
 
Paraphrases. I. Erinna
 
Andrew Lang (1844–1912)
 
 
Antipater of Sidon
 
 
BRIEF is Erinna’s song, her lowly lay,
  Yet there the Muses sing;
Therefore her memory doth not pass away,
  Hid by Night’s shadowy wing!
But we,—new countless poets,—heaped and hurled        5
  All in oblivion lie;
Better the swan’s chant than a windy world
  Of rooks in the April sky!
