Seite 165 - Thammuz came next behind, Whose annual wound in Lebanon allured The Syrian damsels to lament his fate In amorous ditties, all a summer's day; While smooth Adonis from his native rock Ran purple to the sea, supposed with blood Of Thammuz yearly wounded...
Seite 47 - ... (siste, precor, lacrimas) ista ferenda tibi est. sic erat in fatis ; nec te tua culpa fugavit, sed deus ; offenso pulsus es urbe deo. non meriti poenam pateris, sed numinis iram : est aliquid magnis crimen abesse malis. 485 conscia mens ut cuique sua est, ita concipit intra pectora pro facto spemque metumque suo.
Seite 79 - ... et tepidum volucres concentibus aera mulcent, ludit et in pratis luxuriatque pecus. tum blandi soles, ignotaque prodit hirundo et luteum celsa sub trabe figit opus : tum patitur cultus ager et renovatur aratro. 160 haec anni novitas iure vocanda fuit.

Seite 163 - And shrieking sea-birds warn'd him home ; And clouds aloft and tides below, With signs and sounds, forbade to go, He could not see, he would not hear Or sound or sign foreboding fear ; His eye but saw that light of love, The only star it hail'd above ; His ear but rang with Hero's song, " Ye waves, divide not lovers long !" — That tale is old, but love anew May nerve young hearts to prove as true.
Seite 95 - Cum subit illius tristissima noctis imago, Qua mihi supremum tempus in Urbe fuit, Cum repeto noctem, qua tot mihi cara reliqui, Labitur ex oculis nunc quoque gutta meis.
Seite 97 - vale' dicto rursus sum multa locutus, et quasi discedens oscula summa dedi. Saepe eadem mandata dedi meque ipse fefelli, respiciens oculis pignora cara meis. 60 Denique 'quid propero? Scythia est, quo mittimur', inquam, 'Roma relinquenda est.
Seite 21 - Nomen Arionium Siculas impleverat urbes, Captaque erat lyricis Ausonis ora sonis. Inde domum repetens puppim conscendit Arion, Atque ita quaesitas arte ferebat opes. Forsitan, infelix, ventos undamque timebas ; 15 At tibi nave tua tutius aequor erat.
