  • Gravisca, noisome from the neighb’ring fen, And his own Caere, sent three hundred men; With those which Minio’s fields and Pyrgi gave, All bred in arms, unanimous, and brave.
  • Our ships are haul’d upon the yellow strand; The youth begin to till the labor’d land; And I myself new marriages promote, Give laws, and dwellings I divide by lot; When rising vapors choke the wholesome air, And blasts of noisome winds corrupt the year; The trees devouring caterpillars burn; Parch’d was the grass, and blighted was the corn: Nor ’scape the beasts; for Sirius, from on high, With pestilential heat infects the sky: My men— some fall, the rest in fevers fry.
  • Priest Corynaeus, arm’d his better hand, From his own altar, with a blazing brand; And, as Ebusus with a thund’ring pace Advanc’d to battle, dash’d it on his face: His bristly beard shines out with sudden fires; The crackling crop a noisome scent expires.
