Thanks, Herbert and Voss,

This works:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{pdftricks}
\begin{psinputs}
\usepackage{pstricks,pst-plot,pst-text}

\end{psinputs}

\begin{document}
\begin{pdfpic}
\begin{pspicture}(-3,-1)(3,5)
\psaxes[labels=none,linecolor=gray](0,0)(-3,-1)(3,5)
\pstextpath{%
\psplot[linestyle=none]{-2}{2}{4 x 2 exp sub}}{%
This is the graph of the equation $y=4-x^2$ for
$-2\le x\le 2$}
\end{pspicture}
\end{pdfpic}
\end{document}

However, I am afraid I hijacked the original request: which (as I
believe) was to make it inside tikzpicture
