Helen of Troy

Author: Andrew Lang


"Ah, thy first lover! who is first or last
Of men and gods, unnumber’d and unnamed?
Lover by lover in the race is pass’d,
Lover by lover, outcast and ashamed.
Oh, thou of many names, and evil famed!
What wilt thou with me? What must I endure
Whose soul, for all thy craft, is never tamed?
Whose heart, for all thy wiles, is ever pure?
