Pandora


Did Pandora act out of curiosity when opened the evil box?
Or maybe Zeus took revenge on humans for their arrogance
Still indignant about Prometheus' defying deed?
A hybrid of water and earth, Pandora was given
Lavish gifts from gods and goddesses
Beauty and slyness, flattery and wit
A sweet voice, and a power of men
When all the dreadful misfortunes spread all over the Earth
Only hope remained on the bottom of the box
Which was probably Zeus' will
And since then, disease and evil have been visiting us
As unbidden guests, day and night
With inaudible steps they come inside silently
Because Zeus created them mute

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
