Χρυσοῦ μεταλλεῦ, καὶ γεωργὲ σπερμάτων,
τρέφεις, κατολβίζεις με καμάτων δίχα.
Ἀνηρότως ηὔλησα τὴν πανσπερμίαν·
Ἀμαλθίας εὕρηκα τὴν βίβλον κέρας.
Κάμνεις ὀρύττων τὰς πολυχρόνους φλέβας,
ὡς αὐτὸς ἀκάμαντον ἕξω τὴν πόσιν.
Τὴν γοῦν ἀμοιβὴν χάριν ὑψόθεν λάβοις,
ἂν εὐσέβειαν τοῖς πόνοις κεραννύῃς.

Translation(s) Auri effossor, et cultor seminum,
nutris, beatum-efficis me laboribus absque.
Non-arans recondidi omnis-generis semina,
Amaltheae inveni, hunc librum, cornu.
Tu quidem laboras in effodiendis perennibus venis,
ut ego sine labore habeam potum.
Itaque pro munere gratiam caelitus acceperis,
si pietatem laboribus immiscueris.
