Helen of Troy

Author: Andrew Lang


"But round my neck they tied a golden ring
That fell from Ganymedes when he soar’d
High over Ida on the eagle’s wing,
To dwell for ever with the Gods adored,
To be the cup-bearer beside the board
Of Zeus, and kneel at the eternal throne, -
A jewel ’twas from old King Tros’s hoard,
That ruled in Ilios ages long agone.
