Chorus What happened next I did not see and do not tell. The art of Calchas was not unfulfilled. 250Justice inclines her scales so that wisdom comes at the price of suffering. But the future, that you shall know when it occurs; till then, leave it be—it is just as someone weeping ahead of time. Clear it will come, together with the light of dawn.Enter Clytaemestra
