CHOROS. Empowered am I to sing The omens, what their force which, journeying, Rejoiced the potentates: (For still, from God, inflates My breast song-suasion: age, Born to the business, still such war can wage) -- How the fierce bird against the Teukris land Despatched, with spear and executing hand, The Achaian's two-throned empery--o'er Hellas' youth Two rulers with one mind: The birds' king to these kings of ships, on high, -- The black sort, and the sort that's white behind, -- Appearing by the palace, on the spear-throw side, In right sky-regions, visible far and wide, -- Devouring a hare-creature, great with young, Baulked of more racings they, as she from whom they sprung! Ah, Linos, say -- ah, Linos, song of wail! But may the good prevail!
The prudent army-prophet seeing two The Atreidai, two their tempers, knew Those feasting on the hare The armament-conductors were; And thus he spoke, explaining signs in view. "In time, this outset takes the town of Priamos: But all before its towers, -- the people's wealth that was, Of flocks and herds, -- as sure, shall booty-sharing thence Drain to the dregs away, by battle violence. Only, have care lest grudge of any god disturb With cloud the unsullied shine of that great force, the curb Of Troia, struck with damp Beforehand in the camp! For envyingly is The virgin Artemis Toward -- her father's flying hounds -- this House -- The sacrificers of the piteous And cowering beast, Brood and all, ere the birth: she hates the eagles' feast. Ah, Linos, say -- ah, Linos, song of wail! But may the good prevail!
KLUTAIMNESTRA. And this thou hearest -- of my oaths, just warrant! By who fulfilled things for my daughter, Justice, Até, Erinus, -- by whose help I slew him, -- Not mine the fancy -- Fear will tread my palace So long as on my hearth there burns a fire, Aigisthos as before well-caring for me; Since he to me is shield, no small, of boldness. Here does he lie -- outrager of this female, Dainty of all the Chruseids under Ilion; And she -- the captive, the soothsayer also And couchmate of this man, oracle-speaker, Faithful bed-fellow, -- ay, the sailors' benches They wore in common, nor unpunished did so, Since he is -- thus! While, as for her, -- swan-fashion, Her latest having chanted, -- dying wailing She lies, -- to him, a sweetheart: me she brought to -- My bed's by-nicety -- the whet of dalliance.
