Ch. 20: To Apollo

Phoebus, to thee the swan sings shrill to the beating of his wings, as he lights on the bank of the whirling pools of the river Peneus; and to thee with his shrill lyre does the sweet-voiced minstrel sing ever, both first and last.

Even so hail thou, Prince, I beseech thee in my song.

Andrew Lang
