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.

Bonne santé, Beth! Hope your dental problems are over now.

Hey, nice to see you posting poems here! I like the last lines.

I just recorded some swan music for you. It's here.

It's a dedicated poet who finds beauty in dental surgery!

Oh, dear, I hate dental surgery. And codeine. But I love your poem. Feel better.

I liked the second stanza particularly. Keep it up.

Kia ora Beth,
Pretty cool for being Horizontal. Love the poem. Hope you feel better soon. Kia kaha.
Cheers,
Robb

oh Beth, wishing you a speedy recovery. I'll send along a few more soft-food recipes I devised over the fall...

Out of pain, a thing of craft and delicacy. A fine poem, Beth.
