Page xxi - Thou that singest wheat and woodland, tilth and vineyard, hive and horse and herd ; All the charm of all the Muses often flowering in a lonely word ; IV.
Page 225 - ... quin et supremo cum lumine vita reliquit, 735 non tamen omne malum miseris nee funditus omnes corporeae excedunt pestes, penitusque necesse est multa diu concreta modis inolescere miris. ergo exercentur poenis veterumque malorum supplicia expendunt: aliae panduntur inanes 740 suspensae ad ventos, aliis sub gurgite vasto infectum eluitur scelus aut exuritur igni...
Page 114 - Hic canit errantem lunam solisque labores, Unde hominum genus et pecudes, unde imber et ignes, Arcturum pluviasque Hyadas geminosque Triones, Quid tantum oceano properent se tinguere soles 745 Hiberni, vel quae tardis mora noctibus obstet.
Page xxi - Chanter of the Pollio, glorying in the blissful years again to be, Summers of the snakeless meadow, unlaborious earth and oarless sea; Thou that seest Universal Nature moved by Universal Mind; Thou majestic in thy sadness at the doubtful doom of human kind...
Page 5 - Ipse ego cana legam tenera lanugine mala, castaneasque nuces, mea quas Amaryllis amabat ; addam cerea pruna : honos erit huic quoque pomo ; et vos, O lauri, carpam, et te, proxima myrte, sic positae quoniam suavis miscetis odores.

Page xxii - I salute thee, Mantovano, I that loved thee since my day began, Wielder of the stateliest measure ever moulded by the lips of man.
Page 163 - Tandem progreditur magna stipante caterva, Sidoniam picto chlamydem circumdata limbo. Cui pharetra ex auro, crines nodantur in aurum, aurea purpuream subnectit fibula vestem.
Page 255 - Thybris ea fluvium, quam longa est, nocte tumentem leniit, et tacita refluens ita substitit unda, mitis ut in morem stagni placidaeque paludis sterneret aequor aquis, remo ut luctamen abesset. ergo iter inceptum celerant. rumore secundo 90 labitur uncta vadis abies, mirantur et undae, miratur nemus insuetum fulgentia longe scuta virum fluvio pictasque innare carinas.
Page 8 - M. qui Bavium non odit, amet tua carmina, Maevi, atque idem iungat vulpes et mulgeat hircos. 91 D. qui legitis flores et humi nascentia fraga, frigidus, o pueri, fugite hinc, latet anguis in herba.
