Spring: Faun and Nymph, Albert Wilhelm Lefèbre, Kunst und Dekoration, 1897-98.
Nothing of delight nor of sacred love
passeth a joy that the gods have given
when on the head of foes

There is delight, there is desire.
We hunt down the huntsman!
Merrily goes the dance!
For now he is fallen amng the Maenads,
sharp-set for blood!
- The Bacchae, Euripides (trans. Margaret Kinmont Tennant)
