Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, ed.  Poems of Places: An Anthology in 31 Volumes.
Greece and Turkey in Europe: Vol. XIX.  1876–79.
 
Introductory to Greece
On Homer
Anonymous
 
STILL in our ears Andromache complains,
And still in sight the fate of Troy remains;
Still Ajax fights, still Hector ’s dragged along,—
Such strange enchantment dwells in Homer’s song;
Whose birth could more than one proud realm adorn,        5
For all the world is proud that he was born.
