Robert Bridges, ed. (1844–1930).  The Spirit of Man: An Anthology.  1916.
From the Greek Anthology

Plato (427?–347 B.C.)
COME 1 sit aneath this pinetree, whose lofty tressèd crown
  Sighs, as her tufty sprays stir to the west wind’s kiss:
And with the babbling waters my flute thy care shall drown,
  And lull thy dreamy eyelids to sweet forgetful bliss.
Note 1. Plato. In the Greek Anthology; Mackail, p. 190. [Trans. R. Bridges.] [back]
