Excerpt from Rupert Brooke's Grave: And Other Poems
Skyros ls haunted by Old Greek legend. One story tells how the sea-nymph Thetis hid there her son, the young Achilles, disguised as a maiden, that he might not go to the Trojan War; and he was called Pyrrha, from the golden ... hue of his hair. In time his manhood asserted itself. He loved his playmate, Deidameia, who bore him a son, Pyrrhus, also called Neoptolemus, and at last came a day when he saw a display of arms, whereupon the suppressed instincts of the warrior broke free, and he went to Troy, there destined to meet his doom.
