" Orpheus was inconsolable. All day long he mourned his bride while birds beast and the earth itself sorrowed with him."
"All nature rejoiced with him his bridal day, but on hat very morning, as Eurydice went down to the riverside with her maidens to gather flowers for a bridal garland, she was bitten by snake.
" Orpheus took his lyre and made his way to the yawning cave which leads down into the underworld, where the soul of his dead Eurydice had gone."
" Then the king spoke, and his deep voice and his deep voice echoed through hid silent land. " Go back to the light of day," he said. " Go quickly while my monsters are stilled by your song. Climb up the steep road to daylight, and never turn back. The spirit of Eurydice shall follow you."
" Orpheus arose at last and stumbled back along the steep rad h knew so well by know. When he came up to earth again, his song was pitiful but more beautiful than ever. Men and Women he bear could no longer, when they came to him, he drove them away.
" In the daffodil meadows he met the shade of Eurydice, and there they walk together, or where the path is narrow, the shade of Orpheus goes ahead and looks back at his love."
" At last the women of Thrace, madden by Dionysus and infuriated with Orpheus contempt, fell upon him and killed him. It is said that as his body was swept down the river Hebrus, the dead lips still moved faintly and the rocks echoed for the last time, Eurydice.
