  • 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.
