Here you will find the Poem Fragment 01 of poet Simonides
WHEN, upon the well-wrought chest, Fiercely heat the howling wind, And the oceans heaving breast Filled with terror DanaCs mind ; All in tears, her arm she throws Over Perseus, as he lay 0, my babe, she said, what woes On thy mothers bosom weigh! Thou dost sleep with careless breast, Slumbering in this dreary home, Thou dost sweetly take thy rest, In the darkness and the gloom. In thy little mantle there, Passing wave thou dost not mind, Dashing oer thy clustering hair, Nor fhe voices of the wind. Yet if thou, my beauteous one! Felt the weight of this deep woe, Not unconscious would my son Hear his mothers sorrows now. Yet sleep on, my babe, I pray, Sleep thou too, tumultuous deep And th unmeasured cares that stay On my heart,let them too sleep! Father Jove! I ask of thee, Vain their evil counsels make! And, though bold the prayer may be, Right my wrongs, for Perseus sake.
