Decision Time

"With Vulcan's rage the rising winds conspire,
And near our palace roll the flood with fire.
Haste, my dear father, 'tis no time to wait,
And load my shoulders with a willing freight.
Whatever befalls, your life shall be my care;
One death, or one deliverance, we will share."

Book II (Dryden Translation)
