First Line: No more with rocks and trees shalt thou prevail
Last Line: Or grant deliverance from the death to be?
Alternate Author Name(s): Antipatros Of Sidon
Subject(s): Mythology - Classical; Orpheus


NO more with rocks and trees shalt thou prevail,
Or tameless beasts of prey draw after thee,
Nor hush the roar of clanging wind and hail
Or storm of snow or thunder of the sea.
O lost one! how the Maids of Song lament,
And most thy mother, sad Calliope:
Yet wherefore mourn our sons? Can God relent
Or grant deliverance from the death to be?
