Part I. Translate into English :-
Pallada nunc pueri teneraeque orate puellae.
Qui bene placarit Pallada, doctus erit.

Discant, et plenas exonerare colos.

Quam fregisse juvat: nec tam patiente colono
Arva premi, quam si ferro populetur et igni.
Has toties optata exegit gloria poenas !

Quassatam ventis liceat subducere classem,
Et silvis aptare trabes et stringere remos;
Si datur Italiam, sociis et rege recepto,
Tendere, ut Italiam laeti Latiumque petamus;
Sin absumta salus, et te, pater optime Teucrum,
Pontus habet Libyae, nec spes jam restat Iuli,
At freta Sicaniae saltem sedesque paratas,
Unde huc advecti, regemque petamus Acesten.
(B.) For those only who are examined in Book II.

O miseri, quae tanta insania, cives ?
Creditis avectos hostes ? aut ulla putatis
Dona carere dolis Danaum ? sic notus Ulixes ?
Aut hoc inclusi ligno occultantur Achivi,
Aut baec in nostros fabricata est machina muros,
Inspectura domos, venturaque desuper urbi;
Aut aliquis latet error: equo ne credite, Teucri.
Quidquid id est, timeo Danaos et dona ferentes.

Hic, pelagi tot tempestatibus actus,
Heu ! genitorem, omnis curae casusque levamen
Aniitto Anchisen: hic me, pater optime, fessum
Deseris, heu ! tantis nequidquam erepte periclis.
Nec vates Helenus, quum multa horrenda moneret,
Hos mihi praedixit luctus, non dira Celaeno.
Hic labor extremus, longarum haec meta viarum.
Hinc me digressum vestris deus appulit oris.
