The Greek Anthology
 
Translation of William Cowper

WITH reeds and bird-lime from the desert air
Eumelus gathered free though scanty fare.
No lordly patron’s hand he deign’d to kiss,
Nor luxury knew, save liberty, nor bliss.
Thrice thirty years he lived, and to his heirs        5
His reeds bequeathed, his bird-lime, and his snares.
