Page 122 - But when the warrior dieth, His comrades in the war, With arms reversed and muffled drum, Follow his funeral car ; They show the banners taken, They tell his battles won, And after him lead his masterless steed, While peals the minute gun.
Page 102 - Tibullo quam iuveni rupit cum ferus inguen aper. at sacri vates et divum cura vocamur; sunt etiam qui nos numen habere putent ! scilicet omne sacrum mors importuna profanat, omnibus obscuras inicit ilk manus ! quid pater Ismario, quid mater, profuit Orpheo, carmine quid victas obstupuisse feras ? 'aelinon !' in silvis idem pater 'aelinon !' altis dicitur invita concinuisse lyra.
Page 87 - Taburno 715 cum duo conversis inimica in proelia tauri frontibus incurrunt (pavidi cessere magistri, stat pecus omne metu mutum mussantque iuvencae, quis nemori imperitet, quem tota armenta sequantur); illi inter sese multa vi volnera miscent 720 cornuaque obnixi infigunt et sanguine largo colla armosque lavant; gemitu nemus omne remugit: non aliter Tros Aeneas et Daunius heros concurrunt clipeis; ingens fragor aethera complet.
Page 88 - Turni de vita et sanguine certant. 765 forte sacer Fauno foliis oleaster amaris hie steterat, nautis olim venerabile lignum, servati ex undis ubi figere dona solebant Laurenti divo et votas suspendere vestes; sed stirpem Teucri nullo discrimine sacrum 770 sustulerant, puro ut possent concurrere campo.
Page 90 - Olli subridens hominum rerumque repertor : "es germana lovis Saturnique altera proles : 830 irarum tantos volvis sub pectore fluctus. MPR verum age et inceptum frustra submitte furorem : do quod vis, et me victusque volensque remitto. sermonem Ausonii patrium moresque tenebunt, utque est, nomen erit ; commixti corpore tantum 835 subsident Teucri.
Page 150 - Now the storm begins to lower, (Haste, the loom of Hell prepare,) Iron sleet of arrowy shower Hurtles in the darken'd air.
Page 72 - Campum ad certamen magnae sub moenibus urbis Dimensi Rutulique viri Teucrique parabant, In medioque focos et dis communibus aras Gramíneas.
Page 70 - Aenean captiva videbo.' accepit vocem lacrimis Lavinia matris flagrantes perfusa genas, cui plurimus ignem subiecit rubor, et calefacta per ora cucurrit. Indum sanguineo veluti violaverit ostro si quis ebur, aut mixta rubent ubi lilia multa alba rosa : tales virgo dabat ore colores.
Page 86 - Turnus et obtutu tacito stetit. Aestuat ingens uno in corde pudor mixtoque insania luctu et furiis agitatus amor et conscia virtus.
