GOLDWIN SMITH, D.C.L.

AUTHOR OF "BAY LEAVES," "SPECIMENS OF GREEK TRAGEDY," ETC.

 

 

Translated from the Greek of Bianor.

I wept Theonos lost; but one fair child
His father's heart of half its woe beguiled.
And now, sole source of hope and comfort left
That one fair child by envious fate is reft.
Death, hear a fathers prayer and lay to rest
My little one on its lost mothers breast.

Goldwin Smith.
