THERE IS NOTHING STRANGE, by            
First Line: Never man again may swear, things shall be as once they were
Last Line: And fierce wolves, their nature changing, dive beneath th' astonished flood.
Alternate Author Name(s): Archilochos


NEVER man again may swear, things shall be as once they were;
Never more in wonder stare, since the Olympian thunderer
Bade the Sun's meridian splendour hide in shade of murky night;
While affrighted nations started, trembling at the sudden sight.
Who shall dare to doubt hereafter, whatsoever man may say?
Who refuse with stupid laughter credence to the wildest lay?
Though for pasture dolphins ranging leap the hills and scour the wood,
And fierce wolves, their nature changing, dive beneath th' astonished flood.
