248
What followed -- those things I nor saw nor tell.
But Kalchas' arts, -- whate'er they indicate, --
Miss of fulfilment never: it is fate.
True, justice makes, in sufferers, a desire
To know the future woe preponderate.
But -- hear before is need?
To that, farewell and welcome! 't is the same, indeed,
As grief beforehand: clearly, part for part,
Conformably to Kalchas' art,
Shall come the event.
But be they as they may, things subsequent, --
What is to do, prosperity betide
E'en as we wish it! -- we, the next allied,
Sole guarding barrier of the Apian land.
