It belongs not to thee to declare
This object of care!
By us did he fall -- down there!
Did he die -- down there! and down, no less,
We will bury him there, and not beneath
The wails of the household over his death:
But Iphigeneia, -- with kindliness, --
His daughter, -- as the case requires,
Facing him full, at the rapid-flowing
Passage of Groans shall -- both hands throwing
Around him -- kiss that kindest of sires!
