STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF AENEAS

sword and spear of the enemy, yet now he feared for them that were with him. But when they came near to the gates, and the journey was well-nigh finished, they heard the sound of many feet through the darkness. Then the old
sman cried to him, "Fly, my son, fly; they are coming. I see the flashing of shields and of swords."
But as Aeneas hastened to go, Creusa, his wife, was separated from him. Whether she wandered from the way or sat down in weariness, no one knew. But Aeneas saw her no more. He did not even know that she was lost until all his company were gathered at the temple, and she alone was not there. Sad, indeed, was Aeneas, and he cried out in his wrath against gods and men. He bade his comrades take care of his father and his son, and of the house hold gods, while he armed himself again, and returned to the city.
First, he went to the gate by which he had come forth, and then to his house, thinking that perhaps she had returned home. And after that, he went to the ruins of the citadel and to the palace of King Priam. Through all the streets of the city he sought his wife and called her aloud by name.
But lo ! as he called, the image of her whom he sought seemed suddenly to stand before him. And the spirit said, "Why are you so troubled? These things have not happened to us against the will of the gods. The ruler of Olympus orders that Creusa shall not go with you on your journey. You have a long journey to take, and many seas to cross, till you come to the shore where the Tiber flows softly through a fertile land. There shall you have great prosperity, and take to yourself a wife of royal race. Do not weep for me whom you love, and do not imagine me carried away to be a bond-slave to some Grecian woman. Such a fate
