Sicut aquæ tremulum labris ubi lumen aheniš
Sole reperceffum, aut radiantis imagine lunæ,
Omnia pervolitat latè loca, jamique sub auras
Erigitur, summique ferit laquearia tecti.

VIRG. Æn. Vinta
So water trembling in a polish'd vase,
Reflects the beam that plays upon
The sportive light, uncertain where it falls,
Now strikes the roof, now flashes on the walls.
