The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls; He watches from his mountain walls, And like a thunderbolt he falls. TENNYSON. ' exilui stratis, sociam ad noua iussa cateruam uoce uoco, resonosque procul tulit ungula cursus, per tenebras qua Graia pio castra igne rubebant. inuectis uallo tela irradiabat Eous. uix caelum redit, et colles procul inpius hostis descendit serie, ceu nox effunderet arma, innumera, totumque aequor tenuere corusci. dein ruit atra lues prospectumque abstulit omnem. J. P. P. Bex auium.

Nunc sub faginea calamo tibi Tityrus umbra laeta sonat: ridens nunc florea vincula pastor vati indit Satyro: nunc carmine fingis ovanti aurea in insontes redeuntia saecula terras, nullus ubi aestiva lateat malus anguis in herba, non mare remigium poscat, non terra laborem. 47 48 TRANSLATIONS Thou that seest Universal Nature moved by Universal Mind; Thou majestic in thy sadness at the dreadful doom of human kind; Light among the vanished ages; star that gildest yet this phantom shore; Golden branch amid the shadows, kings and realms that pass to rise no more; Now thy Forum roars no longer, fallen every purple Caesar's dome— Tho' thine ocean-roll of rhythm sound for ever of Imperial Rome— Now the Rome of slaves hath perish'd, and the Rome of freemen holds her place, I, from out the Northern Island sunder'd once from all the human race, I salute thee, Mantovano, I that loved thee since my day began, Wielder of the stateliest measure ever moulded by the lips of man.

I am no girl to be made pale by words. Begin! thou art more vast, more dread than I, And thou art proved I know, and I am young— But yet success sways with the breath of Heaven. And though thou thinkest that thou knowest sure Thy victory, yet thou canst not surely know. For we are all like swimmers in the sea, Poised on the top of a huge wave of fate, Which hangs uncertain to which side to fall. And whether it will heave us up to land, Or whether it will roll us out to sea, Back out to sea, to the deep waves of death, We know not, and no search will make us know; Only the event will teach us in its hour.
