Cassandra Ah, the marriage, the marriage of Paris, that destroyed his friends! Ah me, Scamander, my native stream! Upon your banks in bygone days, unhappy maid, was I nurtured with fostering care; 1160but now by Cocytus and the banks of Acheron, I think, I soon must chant my prophecies.

Chorus What words are these you utter, words all too plain? A new-born child hearing them could understand. I am smitten with a deadly pain, while, 1165by reason of your cruel fortune, you cry aloud your pitiful moans that break my heart to hear.
