     And men shall tell of thee, Ilion mine,
     Once more a-harping at day's decline,
'Mid laughing of lovers and lays and dances
     And challenge on challenge of circling wine?
     When the Greek is smitten that day shall be,
     And fled to Argolis over the sea:
O mighty of hand, O leader of lances,
     Smite him, and heaven be good to thee!
