Σειρὴν λόγων σῶν θελκτικωτάτη λίαν
οὐ θῆρας αἱρεῖ καὶ λίθους, νεκρὰν φύσιν,
ὡς μῦθος Ἕλλην ἱστορεῖ τὸν Ὀρφέα,
κακῶς διδάσκων, οὐκ ἀλήθειαν λέγων.
Ἃ γὰρ στέρονται καὶ νοὸς καὶ τοῦ λόγου
ποίαν ἔχουσιν ἡδονὴν ἐν τοῖς λόγοις;
Ψυχὴν δὲ μᾶλλον, τὴν γέμουσαν τῶν λόγων,
τέρπουσα θέλγει τῷ μέλει τῶν σῶν λόγων.
