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.

The first one's very fine - and is going to stay with me

Beth; I know nothing about Japanese verse forms, but just to let you know I was passing.

Thank you, Jean. It just came to me and I wrote it down -- funny how that happens sometimes. Usually it's a struggle.

Thanks for telling me you were here, Tom!
