Flumine tum rapido invehitur, qui dividit arva
Cornubia et Devona Tamar, sub utrumque citato
Flumine delabens finem, Plimique propinquâ
Auctus aquâ obliquo decurrit ad Ostia cursu;
Hunc sequitur Dartes, stanni qui obsessus arenis
Tellure effossis vix currit in æquora : deinde
Grandius incedens, latèque adamante corusco
Resplendens, Auvona venit, jactatque fluento
Impositas urbes, vos, O miracula mundi,
Solis
aquæ,

et multâ Bristoa ornata carinâ.

Plurimus Ousa fluens ex interioribus agris
Proximus it, multas et præterlabitur urbes,
Oppida multa, aliosque super, dum defluit, amnes
In sese recipit : Clevam, Verumque sonantem
Gantemque Sturimque citum Ronamque fugacem ;-
Inde petit sedem quondam venantibus aptam,
Et te, Granta, parens mea, quam circum ille coronâ
Ornat et ingenuis ornatur honoribus ipse,
Musarumque choro facundorumquc loquellâ.

Post hos Tyna venit, cujus per littora, saxis
Obsita, Romanus murum construxit ahenum,
Quo melius Pictûm spoliantia latius illic
Agmina jam invalidi possent arcere Britanni.
Nunc quoque nomen habet de fundatore Severo.
Se Tueda adjungit comitem, qui dividit agros
Logridos Albanosque ; incedit Ituna supremus,
Parvus Ituna quidem, at Scotorum sæpe cruore
Turbidus Angligenûmque simul, quos miscuit illo
Littore mars sævis inter se plurimus armis.

HENRICUS STOKER. SATAN'S ADDRESS TO THE SUN.

Milton.

O thou, that, with surpassing glory crown'd,
Look’st from thy sole dominion like the god
Of this new world; at whose sight all the stars
Hide their diminish'd heads; to thee I call,
But with no friendly voice, and add thy name,
O sun! to tell thee how I hate thy beams,
That bring to my remembrance from what state
I fell, how glorious once above thy sphere;
Till pride and worse ambition threw me down,
Warring in heaven against heaven's matchless King:
Ah, wherefore? he deserved no such return
From me, whom he created what I was
In that bright eminence, and with his good
Upbraided none; nor was his service hard.
What could be less than to afford him praise,
The easiest
recompense,

him thanks,
How due! yet all his good proved ill in me,
And wrought but malice; lifted up so high
I’sdain'd subjection, and thought one step higher
Would set me highest, and in a moment quit
The debt immense of endless gratitude,
So burdensome still paying, still to owe:
Forgetful what from him I still received,
And understood not that a grateful mind
By owing owes not, but still pays, at once
Indebted and discharged.

IDEM GRÆCE REDDITUM.

Σε τον περίσσαίγλαισιν έξεστεμμένον,
οίας απ' αρχής ός πρέπεις οράν θεω
τω δεσποτούντι τήσδε γης νεοσπόρου,
ου δη φανέντος κράτας ήτιμασμένους
κρύπτουσι πάντες αστέρες,-σέ τοι καλώ,
αλλ' ού φίλοισι φθέγμασιν προσεννέπων,
“Ήλιε, σον όνομα προστιθείς, ίν εκμάθης
ώς έστ' εμοί σον φέγγος έχθιστον, δι' ου
μνηστίς μ' επήλθεν οίος ών οίως έχω,
ως λαμπρός ήν ποτ' είς υπερβολήν σέθεν,
έως χλιδή και τησδ' έτ' αισχίων νόσος,
φιλιτιμία, μ' έσφηλε κανεχαίτισεν
μαχόμενον αμάχω τώ κατ' ουρανόν Πρόμω.
τί δή παθόντ'; Εκείνος ουκ ήν άξιος
ταύτ' αντιπάσχειν τούδ' ύφ', όνπερ έκτισεν
ωάλ' υψίπυργον, κου τον εύ πεπονθότα
ωνείδισ', ουδ' έκνιζε τούκείνου ζυγόν:
τί γαρ γένοιτ' άν ράον ή κείνον καλούς
λόγους επαινείν, μισθον ευτελέστατον,
χάριν τ' αποτίνειν χάριτος αξιωτάτω.
καίτοι τα γ εσθλά πάντα τάκείνου κακά
εγένετο, δυσμένειαν εμφύσαντά μου
τοσούτος αρθείς ούκ έπλην άλλου κλύειν
αναβάς τε βάθρον έν μόνον περαιτέρω
ούτως έμελλον ακροτάτης κρατείν έδρας
και της τ' απαύστου χάριτος εν πληγή μια
απαλλαγήναι μυρίου τ. άχθους, όπερ
εν τω τίνειν ένεστι κώφείλειν αέι,
λαθόμενος ών και τηνικαύτ' ελάμβαναν
κείνου διδόντος, ου τόδε ξυνεις ότι
ουδέν γ οφείλει πάς οφειλέτης, παρ'
κείται βέβαιος η χάρις τίνει μεν ούν
οφειλέτης ών κούκ οφειλέτης άμα.
