"But now a man,
with the Lord's assistance, has accomplished something
none of us could manage before now
for all our efforts. Whoever she was
who brought forth this flower of manhood,
if she is alive, that woman can say
that in her labour the Lord of Ages
bestowed a grace on her" (938-945).

continue to keep and requite you" (954-955).

The Lord allowed it, my lock on him

at a high price.." (966-970).


"But death is not easily
escaped from by anyone:
all of us with souls,earth-dwellers
and children of men, must make our way
to a destination already ordained
where the body, after the banqueting,
sleeps on its deathbed" (1001-1007).
