218
But when he underwent necessity's
Yoke-trace, -- from soul blowing unhallowed change
Unclean, abominable, -- thence--another man --
The audacious mind of him began
Its wildest range.
For this it is gives mortals hardihood --
Some vice-devising miserable mood
Of madness, and first woe of all the brood.
The sacrificer of his daughter -- strange! --
He dared become, to expedite
Woman-avenging warfare, -- anchors weighed
With such prelusive rite!
