When Orpheus play his lyre, he charmed all things on earth. Men and women forgot their cares when gathered around him to listen. Wild beast lay down as if they were tame. Even rocks and trees followed him, and the rivers changed their direction to hear him play.
1.When the Cerberus- the fierce three headed dog who guarded the gates, heard the sweet music and lay still to let him pass.
2. When stern Hades heard Orpheus' song, he began to weep. The cold Persephone was moved that, for the first time in all her months in the underworld, her heart melted.
