Seite 220 - The zephyrsf breathed softly through its glassy folds ; the clouds strewed pearls among them. My shadow was wide upon the earth. My arms spread far on the gentle air: my head was lifted high; my forehead was fair to the heavens. But now how changed ! Sadness is upon me ; my head is shorn, my arms are stripped ; I cannot throw a shadow on the ground.

The lynx, the leopard, and the bear, The tiger and the wolf, were there; The hoof-defended steed; The bull, prepared with horns to gore, The cat with claws, the tusky boar, And all the canine breed. In social compact thus combined, Together dwelt the beasts of prey; Their murderous weapons all resigned, And vowed each other not to slay. Among...
