Ah me, the nuptials, the nuptials of Paris, the deadly to friends!
Ah me, of Skamandros the draught
Paternal! There once, to these ends,
On thy banks was I brought,
The unhappy! And now, by Kokutos and Acheron's shore
I shall soon be, it seems, these my oracles singing once more!
Why this word, plain too much,
Hast thou uttered? A babe might learn of such!
I am struck with a bloody bite -- here under --
At the fate woe-wreaking
Of thee shrill shrieking:
To me who hear -- a wonder!
