C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
A Poet’s Epitaph
By Simmias of Thebes (fl. Fifth–Fourth Century B.C.)
The Greek Anthology
 
Translation of Lilla Cabot Perry

QUIETLY, o’er the tomb of Sophocles,
  Quietly, ivy, creep with tendrils green;
And roses, ope your petals everywhere,
  While dewy shoots of grape-vine peep between,
Upon the wise and honeyed poet’s grave,        5
Whom Muse and Grace their richest treasures gave.
