  • But when the star of Lucifer appear'd, The harbinger of light, whom following close Spreads o'er the sea the saffron-robed morn, Then pal'd the smould'ring fire, and sank the flame; And o'er the Thracian sea, that groan'd and heav'd Beneath their passage, home the Winds return'd; And weary, from the pyre a space withdrawn, Achilles lay, o'ercome by gentle sleep.
