  • A spacious breach is made; the town lies bare; Some hoisting-levers, some the wheels prepare And fasten to the horse’s feet; the rest With cables haul along th’ unwieldly beast.
  • A mighty breach is made: the rooms conceal’d Appear, and all the palace is reveal’d; The halls of audience, and of public state, And where the lonely queen in secret sate.
  • The pit resounds with shrieks; a war succeeds, For breach of public faith, and unexampled deeds.
  • ’T is just that I should vindicate alone The broken truce, or for the breach atone.
  • Advancing to the front, the hero stands, And, stretching out to heav’n his pious hands, Attests the gods, asserts his innocence, Upbraids with breach of faith th’ Ausonian prince; Declares the royal honor doubly stain’d, And twice the rites of holy peace profan’d.
