That no cause, indeed, of this killing art thou,
Who shall be witness-bearer?
How shall he bear it -- how?
But the sire's avenging-ghost might be in the deed a sharer.
He is forced on and on
By the kin-born flowing of blood,
-- Black Ares: to where, having gone,
He shall leave off, flowing done,
At the frozen-child's-flesh food.
