no wild bird

'So I am going in, and mourning as I go my death and Agamemnon's. 
Let my life be done. Ah friends, truly this is no wild bird fluttering in a bush, 
nor vain my speech.   
Bear witness to me when I die, when falls for me, a woman slain, 
another woman and when a man dies for this wickedly mated man. 
Here in my death I claim this stranger's grace of you.'
Agamemnon by Aeschylus
