Orpheus

ByGeorge R.S. Mead

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Orpheus was the son of Œagrus, King of Thrace, and Calliope, one of the Muses. He was the first poet and first inspired singer, and his whole life is the history of the results of divine harmony. Lord of the seven-stringed lyre, all men flocked to hear him, and wild beasts lay peacefully at his feet; trees and stones were not unmoved at the music of his heavenly instrument. The denizens of the unseen world and the princes of Hades rejoiced at the tones of his harp. Companion of the Argonauts in their famous expedition, the good ship Argo glides gently over the peaceful sea at the will of his magic strains; the fearsome moving rocks of the Symplegades that threatened Argo with destruction were held motionless; the dragon of Colchis that watched the golden fleece was plunged in sleep profound.
