Φεῦ φεῦ· ποθῶ μὲν πανταχοῦ πλείω γράφειν,
ὁρῶ δ' ἐπιβλέποντας οὐδὲ πρὸς τάδε·
ἄλλους γὰρ ἄλλοι νῦν ἐπείγουσιν πόνοι,
λόγων δὲ τούτων καὶ γραφῶν οὐδεὶς λόγος.
Ὅθεν τὸ δῶρον τοῦ Θεοῦ μοῦ, τὸν λόγον,
ἔχων πρόχειρον, οὐκ ἔχω τούτου χάριν,
ἀλλ' εἰς σιωπὴν συγκεκλεισμένον βλέπων,
ὡς τἄλλα πάντα καρτερῶ που καὶ τόδε.
