l. The GodsSource: Mythology The Gods,Strange clouded fragments of an ancient glory, Late lingerers of the company divine, They breathe of that far world where from they come, Lost halls of heaven and Olympian air.
The Greeks did not believe that the gods created the universe. It was the other way about: the universe created the gods. Before there were gods heaven and earth had been formed. They were the first parents. The Titans were their children, and the gods were their grandchildren.
I have checked the dictionaries. I have seen "divine company" but not "company divine".
Would you please be kind enough to clarify the blue part to me?
