The Prophecy

”Now the last age by Cumae's Sibyl sung
Has come and gone, and the majestic roll
Of circling centuries begins anew:
Justice returns, returns old Saturn's reign,
With a new breed of men sent down from heaven.
Only do thou, at the child's birth in whom
The iron shall cease, the golden race arise. (Virgil, Eclogue IV circa 37 BC)”
