Subject(s): Zeus


GREAT God! snow, hail! make darkness! thunder! burn!
On earth thy store of purpling storm-clouds turn!
Slay me, and I will cease; but while I live,
I revel on, though worse than this thou give.
The god that mastered thee leads me; he drove
Thee through the brazen bower in gold, O Jove.
