CONSEDE

"ONSEDERE duces: et, vulgi ftante corona,

Surgit ad hos clypei dominus feptemplicis Ajax,
Utquc erat impatiens irae, Sigcia torvo

The Trojan fhore, an'a' the barks

That tedder'd fast did ly

Alang the coast; an’raxing out

His gardies, loud did cry:

O Jove! The cause we here do plead,

An'unco great's the staik;

Bat fall that Neeth ULYSSES now

Be said to be my maik?

Ye ken right well, fan HECTOR try'd

Thir barks to burn an' fcowder,

He took to speed o; fit, because

He cou'd na' bide the ewder.

Littora respexit, classemque in littore, vulta:
Intendensque manus, Agimus (pro Juppiter !) inquit,
Ante rates caussam; et mecum confertur Ulyffes !
At'non Hectoreis dubitavit cedere flammis:ITO

Bat I, like birky, stood the brunt,

An'locken’d out that gleed,
Wi'muckle virr, an' fyne I gard

The limmers tak the speed.

'Tis better than, the cause we try

Wi'the wind o’our wame,

Than for to come in hanny gripe

At fik a driry time.

At threeps I am na' sae perquire,

Nor auld-farren as he,

Bat at banes-brakin, it's well kent,

[ocr errors]

He has na'maughts like me.

Quas ego fustinui; quas hac a classe fugavi,
Tutius est fictis igitur contendere verbis,
Quam pugnare manu. sed nec mihi dicere promtum;
