Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, ed.  Poems of Places: An Anthology in 31 Volumes.
Italy: Vols. XI–XIII.  1876–79.
 
Reggio (Rhegium)
On Ibycus
Anonymous
 
Translated by W. Hay

RHEGIUM, whose feet, Trinacria’s straitened sea
Laves ever, verge extreme of Italy,
Honored be thou in song for having laid
Under thy leafy elms’ embowering shade
The dust of Ibycus, the bard beloved,        5
The bard of Love, who all its joys had proved;
Mantle his grave with ivy,—round it plant
Reeds, to send forth the shepherd’s rural chant.
