His right hand held his bloody falchion bare, His left he twisted in his hoary hair ; Then, with a speeding thrust, his heart he found: The lukewarm blood came rushing through the wound, And sanguine streams distained the sacred ground.
Page 335 - Fronte sub adversa scopulis pendentibus antrum, Intus aquae dulces vivoque sedilia saxo, Nympharum domus.
Page vi - Notes of a Twelve Years' Voyage of Discovery in the First Six Books of the Aeneis'.
