    So hideous was the tumult, all three worlds
    Seemed filled with fright; and one was heard to cry:
    Death --the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.

    "The fire is in the tents! fly for your lives!
    Stay not!" And others cried: "Look where we
    Our treasures trodden down; gather them! Halt
    Why run ye, losing ours and yours? Nay, stay!
    Stand ye, and we will stand!" And then to these
    One voice cried, "Stand!" another, "Fly! we die!"
    Answered by those again who shouted, "Stand!
    Think what we lose, O cowards!"
    Death --the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.

    While this rout
    Raged, amid dying groans and sounds of fear,
    The Princess, waking startled, terror-struck,
    Saw such a sight as might the boldest daunt, -
    Such scene as those great lovely lotus-eyes
    Ne'er gazed upon before. Sick with new dread, -
    Her breath suspended 'twixt her lips, - she rose
    And heard, of those surviving, some one moan
    Amidst his fellows: "From whose evil act
    Is this the fruit? Hath worship not been paid
    To mighty Manibhadra? Gave we not
    The reverence due to Vaishravan, that King
    Of all the Yakshas? Was not offering made
    At outset to the spirits which impede?
    Is this the evil portent of the birds?
    Were the stars adverse? or what else hath fall'n?
    Death --the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.

    And others said, wailing for friends and goods:
    "Who was that woman, with mad eyes, that came
    Into our camp, ill-favored, hardly cast
    In mortal mould? By her, be sure, was wrought
    This direful sorcery. Demon or witch,
    Yakshi or Rakshasi, or gliding ghost,
    Or sometl1ing frightful, was she. Hers this deed
    Of midnight murders; doubt there can be none.

    Ah, if we could espy that hateful one,
    The ruin of our march, the woe-maker,
    With stones, clods, canes, or clubs, nay, with clenched fists,
    We 'd strike her dead, the murderess of our band!"
    Death --the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.

    Trembling the Princess heard those angry words;
    And - saddened, maddened, shamed - breathless she fled
    Into the thicket, doubtful if such sin
    Might not be hers, and with fresh dread distressed.

    "Aho!" she weeps, "pitiless grows the wrath
    Of Fate against me. Not one gleam of good
    Arriveth. Of what fault is this the fruit?

    cannot call to mind a wrong I wrought
    To any - even a little thing - in act
    Or thought or word; whence then hath come this curse?

    Is payment of old evils undischarged.

    Grievous the doom, - my palace lost, my lord,
    My children, kindred; I am torn'away
    From home and love and all, to roam accurst
    In this plague-haunted waste!"

    When brake the day,
    Those which escaped alive, with grievous cries
    Departed, mourning for their fellows slain.
    Each one a kinsman or a friend laments,
    Father or brother, son, or comrade dear.

    And Damayanti, hearing, weeps anew,
    Saying: "What dreadful sin was that I wrought
    Long, long ago, which, when I chance to meet
    These wayfarers in the unpeopled wood,
    Dooms them to perish by the elephants,
    In my dark destiny enwrapped? No doubt
    More and more sorrow I shall bear, or bring,
    For none dies ere his time; this is the lore
    Of ancient sages; this is why -being glad
    If I could die - I was not trampled down
    Under the elephants. There haps to man
    Nothing unless by destiny. Why else,
    Seeing that never have I wrought one wrong,
    From childhood's hours, in thought or word or deed,
    Hath this woe chanced? May be - meseerns it may!-
    The mighty gods, at my Swayamvara
    Slighted by me for Nala's dearest sake,
    Are wroth, and by their dread displeasure thus
    To loss and loneliness I am consigned!"

    So - woe-begone and wild - this noble wife,
    Deserted Damayanti, poured her griefs:
    And afterwards, with certain Brahmanas
    Saved from the rout, - good men who knew the Veds,
    Sadly her road she finished, like the moon
    That goeth clouded in the month of rain.

    Thus travelling Iong, the Princess drew at last
    Nigh to a city, at the evening hour.
    The dwelling-place it was of Chedi's Chief,
    The just Sub‚hu. Through its lofty gates
    Painfully passed she, clad in half a cloth;
    And as she entered, - sorrow-stricken, wan,
    Foot-weary, stained with mire, with unsmoothed hair-,
    Unbathed, and eyes of madness, - those who saw,
    Wondered and stared, and watched her as she toiled
    Down the long city-street. The children brake
    From play, and -boys with girls - followed her steps,
    So that she came - a crowd encompassing -
    Unto the King's door. On the palace roof
    The mother of the Maharaja paced,
    And marked the throng, and that sad wayfarer.

    Then to her nurse spake the queen-mother this
    "Go thou, and bring yon woman unto me!
    The people trouble her; mournful she walks,
    Seeming unfriended, yet bears she a mien
    Made for a king's abode, and, all so wild,
    Still are her wistful eyes like the great eyes
    Of Lakshmi's self." So downwards went the nurse,
    Bidding the rude folk back; and to the roof
    Of the great palace led that wandering one,
    Desolate Damayanti, -whom the Queen
    Courteous besought: "Though thou art wan of face,
    Thou wear'st a noble air, which through thy griefs
    Shineth as lightning doth behind its cloud.
    Tell me thy name, and whose thou art, and whence.
    No low-born form is thine, albeit thou com'st
    Wearing no ornaments; and all alone
    Wanderest, - not fearing men, -by some spell safe."

    Hearing which words, the child of Bhima spake
    Gratefully this: "A woful woman I,
    And woful wife, but faithful to my vows;
    High-born, but like a servant, like a slave,
    Lodging where it may hap, and finding food
    From the wild roots and fruits wherever night
    Brings me my resting-place. Yet is my lord
    A prince noble and great, with countless gifts
    Endued; and him I followed faithfully
    As 'twere his shadow, till hard fate decreed
    That he should fall into the rage of dice
    And, worsted in that play, into the wood
    He fled, clad in one cloth, frenzied and lone.

    And I his steps attended in the wood,
    Comforting him, my husband. But it chanccd,
    Hungry and desperate, he lost his cloth;
    And I - one garment bearing - followed still
    My unclad lord, despairing, reasonless,
    Through many a weary night not slumbering.

    But when, at length, a little while I slept,
    My Prince abandoned me, rending away
    Half of my garment, leaving there his wife,
    Who never wrought him wrong. That lord I seek

    By day and night, with heart and soul on fire, -
    Seek, but still find not; though he is to me
    Brighter than light which gleams from lotus-cups,
    Divine as are the immortals, dear as breath,
    The master of my life, my pride, my joy!"

    Whom, grieving so, her sweet eyes blind with tears,
    Gently addressed Sub‚hu's mother, - sad
    To hear as she to tell. "Stay with us here,
    Thou ill-starred lady. Great the friendliness
    I have for thee. The people of our court
    Shall thy lost husband seek; or, it may be,
    He too will wander hither of himself
    By devious paths: yea, mournful one, thy lord
    Thou wilt regain, abiding with us here."

    And Damayanti, bowing, answered thus
    Unto the Queen: "I will abide with thee,
    O mother of illustrious sons, if so
    They feed me not on orts, nor seek from me
    To wash the feet of comers, nor that I
    Be set to speak with any stranger-men
    Before the curtain; and, if any man
    Sue me, that he be punished; and if twice,
    Then that he die, guilty of infamy.

    This is my earnest prayer; but Brahmanas
    Who seek my husband, or bear news of him,
    Such will I speak with. If it may be thus,
    Gladly would I abide, great lady, here;
    If otherwise, it is not on my mind
    To sojourn longer."

    Very tenderly
    Quoth the queen-mother: "All that thou dost ask
    We will ordain. The gods reward thy love,
    Which hath such honor!" Comforting her so,
    To the king's daughter, young Sunand‚, spake
    The -Maharajni: "See, Sunand‚, here
    Clad as a handmaid, but in form divine,
    One of thy years, gentle and true. Be friends;
    Take and give pleasure in glad company
    Each with the other, keeping happy hearts."

    Leading with loving hand the Princess in,
    The maidens of the court accompanying.
