     Thou Rider golden and swift and sheer,
     Achilles falters: appear! appear!
The car like flame where the red shield leapeth,
     The fell white steeds and the burning spear!
     No Greek shall boast he hath seen thy face
     And danced again in the dancing place;
And the land shall laugh for the sheaves she reapeth,
     Of spoilers dead by a sword from Thrace.
