The Farmer's Lot

Pseudo-Herodotus, Life of Homer 18 (tr. Hugh G. Evelyn-White; supposedly said by Homer visiting Erythraea):
Queen Earth, all bounteous giver of honey-hearted wealth, how kindly, it seems, you are to some, and how intractable and rough for those with whom you are angry.

πότνια γῆ, πάνδωρε, δότειρα μελίφρονος ὄλβου,
ὡς ἄρα δὴ τοῖς μὲν φωτῶν εὔοχθος ἐτύχθης,
τοῖσι δὲ δύσβωλος καὶ τρηχεῖ', οἷς ἐχολώθης.
