Helen of Troy

Author: Andrew Lang


No guard they set, for truly to them all
Did Love and slumber seem exceeding good;
There was no watch by open gate nor wall,
No sentinel by Pallas’ image stood;
But silence grew, as in an autumn wood
When tempests die, and the vex’d boughs have ease,
And wind and sunlight fade, and soft the mood
Of sacred twilight falls upon the trees.
