In Greek mythology, Tiresias was a blind prophet of Thebes, famous for being transformed into a woman for seven years. He was the son of the shepherd Everes and the nymph Chariclo. Tiresias participated in fully seven generations at Thebes, beginning as advisor to Cadmus himself. In Greek literature, Tiresias’s pronouncements are always gnomic but never wrong.
“Have it, it’s yours, the waiting—hope and remorse both.
He can’t stop, his steps lead away.
His face—not the moon—must slide from sky to allow day.
Be glad I leave.
It’s better not to know what you ride.”
