The Windows of Mycenae Picture

When the Beautiful Helen eloped to Troy with Paris
king Menelaus, her husband,
appealed to the other Greek kings
to wage war against the Trojans.
He was furious, he was indignant, he was vengeful.
But when the first night fell over his kingdom,
above all, he was sad.
He walked to the window of his chambers
to admire his dominions and find solace.
The olive groves seemed to have disappeared
from the fields,
the nightingales had migrated to a distant country,
the breeze brought no perfumes nor sounds.
A dark silence reigned over Mycenae
and his palace was in ruins.
He knelt.
