Page 206 - Then bards who chant celestial lays, And nymphs of heavenly birth, Flocked round upon that flood to gaze That streamed from sky to earth. The gods themselves from every sphere, Incomparably bright, Borne in their golden cars drew near To see the wondrous sight.

Then bards who chant celestial lays, And nymphs of heavenly birth, Flocked round upon that flood to gaze That streamed from sky to earth. The gods themselves from every sphere Incomparably bright. Borne in their golden cars drew near To see the wondrous sight. The cloudless sky was all aflame With the light of a hundred suns, Where'er the shining chariots came That...
