The sky will extinguish its stars, and the sun
will appear shining in the folds of night,
and the sea will be a well of fresh water for men,
and the dead will come back to the land of the living,
before forgetfulness of these ancient lines
can steal from us the far-famed name of Homer.
Philip, Anth. 9.575
