357

Chorus The earth's varied fruits, fallen to the ground, give pain, a bitter sight for the maid-servants. 360In jumbled confusion the abundant gifts of earth are carried away by reckless looting waves. Young women, enslaved, suffer a new evil: a bed of misery, prize of the conquering enemy's spear, as though of a prospering husband— 365they can expect the coming of the nightly rite, which gives aid to tears and anguish!
