Excerpt:
Orpheus was the son of the god Apollo; and Apollo, proud of his beautiful son, gave him his own mellow-stringed lyre, and taught him to play so sweetly upon it, that not only men and women, but even the beasts of the field stopped to listen; and, listening, forgot their wicked, savage passions and became, one and all, gentle and loving as the lambs on the sunny hillside.


Even the trees quivered and sighed, and the rocks melted before his tender strains. When Orpheus became a man, he won with his sweet music the beautiful Eurydice for his wife; but alas, happy though they were, they were subject to an evil fate, and soon their joy was at an end. For one day, when Eurydice was wandering with her nymphs in the fields, she stepped upon a poisonous snake that turned and bit her, poisoning her so that she died from the cruel wound. Poor Orpheus! For a time he had no heart to touch the lyre, and all the earth was sad and still.

But one day he went out into the streets with it in his hand and sang his grief out into the summer air. Brave men wept great tears of sympathy, so tender and so touching was his music, and even the gods on Mt. Olympus looked softly down upon him.
