A Poem on Love

Through his music, Orpheus charmed the rulers of the Under‐ world into letting him reclaim his dead wife, with the restriction that he must not look at her until she returned to earth; when almost at the gates of Hades he turned to make sure she was following and thus lost her for ever.
