Aeschylus Earth Poems

  • 1.
    Earth is rocking in space!
    And the thunders crash up with a roar upon roar,
    And the eddying lightnings flash fire in my face,
    And the whirlwinds are whirling the dust round and round--
  • 2.
    Up and lead the dance of Fate!
    Lift the song that mortals hate!
    Tell what rights are ours on earth,
    Over all of human birth.

    Now long and long from wintry Strymon blew
    The weary, hungry, anchor-straining blasts,
    The winds that wandering seamen dearly rue,

And to our high-rais'd phantasie present,
That undisturbed Song of pure content,
Ay sung before the saphire-colour'd throne
To him that sits theron
