The Homerides
by [?]


Who is the bard of the Iliad among you? For since he likes puddings,
Heyne begs he’ll accept these that from Gottingen come.
“Give them to me! The kings’ quarrel I sang!”–
“I, the fight near the vessels!”–“Hand me the puddings!
I sang what upon Ida took place!”
Gently! Don’t tear me to pieces! The puddings will not be sufficient;
He by whom they are sent destined them only for one.
