1017

Chorus But a man's blood, once it has first fallen by murder to earth 1020in a dark tide—who by magic spell shall call it back? Even he [Note]who possessed the skill to raise from the dead—did not Zeus make an end of him as warning? 1025And unless one fate ordained of the gods restrains another fate from winning the advantage, my heart would outstrip my tongue and pour forth its fears [Note]; 1030but, as it is, it mutters only in the dark, distressed and hopeless ever to unravel anything in time when my soul's aflame.
