681 CHOROS. Who may he have been that named thus wholly with exactitude --
(Was he someone whom we see not, by forecastings of the future
Guiding tongue in happy mood?)
-- Her with battle for a bridegroom, on all sides contention-wooed,
Helena? Since -- mark the suture! --
Ship's-Hell, Man's-Hell, City's-Hell,
From the delicately-pompous curtains that pavilion well,
Forth, by favour of the gale
Of earth-born Zephuros did she sail.
Many shield-bearers, leaders of the pack,
Sailed too upon their track,
Theirs who had directed oar,
Then visible no more,
To Simois' leaf-luxuriant shore --
For sake of strife all gore!
