Seite 108 - tis thine alone, with awful sway, To rule mankind, and make the world obey, Disposing peace and war, thy own majestic way: To tame the proud, the fettered slave to free: — These are imperial arts, and worthy thee.
Seite 44 - These be her words, but a woman's words to a love that is eager, In wind or water's stream do require to be writ.
Seite 110 - And golden chains on their white necks they wear. Gold are their vests ; long Alpine spears they wield, And their left arm sustains a length of shield. Hard by, the leaping Salian priests advance ; And naked through the streets the mad Luperci dance: In caps of wool ; the targets dropt from heaven.
Seite 110 - Catiline Hung on a rock — the traitor; and, around, The Furies hissing from the nether ground. Apart from these, the happy souls he draws, And Cato's holy ghost dispensing laws.

How great a wail of mighty men that Field of Fame shall pour On Mavors' mighty city walls : what death-rites seest thou there, O Tiber, as thou glidest by his new-wrought tomb and fair !

Seite 119 - Or smitten spur amid the flank of eager foaming horse. O child of all men's ruth, if thou the bitter Fates mayst force, Thou art Marcellus. Reach ye hands of lily-blooms fulfilled ; For I will scatter purple flowers, and heap such offerings spilled Unto the spirit of my child, and empty service do.
Seite 104 - Was bending : Egypt all and Ind at terror of the sight, Arabians all and Saba's hosts, back shewing, brake in flight. The queen herself, the winds invoked, was seen amain to ease And ease her ropes, and crowded sail give flowing to the breeze. The Lord of fire had pictured her, o'er-paled with death's 6° forecast, Amid the carnage borne by waves and lapygian blast.
