Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

thanks for posting this, i loved reading it.

yes. I like this one, very much.

me too.

This is wonderful. Goodness, there are some great Polish poets! I grew up with my mom's snottiness about her Polish in-laws, and their own lack of education (they were pretty much peasants), so I never realized until I was an adult the richness of the culture.

thanks for this poem - I really like it - and for the link.
