Brutus Iulius Trois Part 06

*readers  think of this epic as classic Latin badly translated into English.

Brutus Iulius Trois Part 6

Silent stayed Ascanius, keeping secret his sons fate
when Silvanus inherited the Trojan crown  he wedded Julia his close cousin 
tying  the Trojan grafts tighter to their newly Latin roots. 
Julia Dardanus died in birthing a beautiful son 
she breathed her last even as he breathed his first.
In sorrow Silvanus lifted his son aloft to show the courtiers
as he hefted the babe, he  named his heavy burden Brutus.
In true Trojan fashion Ascanius had raised Silvanus his son
In such fashion Silvanus in turn raised Brutus Iulius Trois
Grey eyed Brutus was  truly a Trojan son 
as he attended his father upon a great hunt
Jealous Juno hated this Brutus this Trois 
her anger caused his arrow to slay 
neither the black boar nor the collared hind
t'was father Silvanus the fatal arrow struck.
