  • Thou see’st the foe secure; how faintly shine Their scatter’d fires! the most, in sleep supine Along the ground, an easy conquest lie: The wakeful few the fuming flagon ply; All hush’d around.
  • On earth supine, a manly corpse he lies; His vest and armor are the victor’s prize.
  • Backward he fell; and, as his fate design’d, The ruins of an altar were behind: There, pitching on his shoulders and his head, Amid the scatt’ring fires he lay supinely spread.
  • " ’Not unreveng’d Ulysses bore their fate, Nor thoughtless of his own unhappy state; For, gorg’d with flesh, and drunk with human wine While fast asleep the giant lay supine, Snoring aloud, and belching from his maw His indigested foam, and morsels raw; We pray; we cast the lots, and then surround The monstrous body, stretch’d along the ground: Each, as he could approach him, lends a hand To bore his eyeball with a flaming brand.
