Aoidoi: Bion 9 and 11

I've worked up two shorter fragments by Bion. I was looking something up recently in Theocritus, and happened to notice the smaller of Bion's works hanging out way at the end of the book (the OCT Bucolici Graeci), and found them straightforward to read, even in dialect.

Bion 9 is about whom the Muses will and will not help. Bion 11 is an appeal to Hesperus, the evening start.
