  • I sav’d the shipwrack’d exile on my shore; With needful food his hungry Trojans fed; I took the traitor to my throne and bed: Fool that I was— ’t is little to repeat The rest— I stor’d and rigg’d his ruin’d fleet.
  • O country lost, and gods redeem’d in vain, If still in endless exile we remain!
  • Arriv’d at home, he, for whose only sake, Or most for his, such toils I undertake, The good Anchises, whom, by timely flight, I purpos’d to secure on Ida’s height, Refus’d the journey, resolute to die And add his fun’rals to the fate of Troy, Rather than exile and old age sustain.
  • And thou, O sacred maid, inspir’d to see Th’ event of things in dark futurity; Give me what Heav’n has promis’d to my fate, To conquer and command the Latian state; To fix my wand’ring gods, and find a place For the long exiles of the Trojan race.
  • Now sev’n revolving years are wholly run, Since this improsp’rous voyage we begun; Since, toss’d from shores to shores, from lands to lands, Inhospitable rocks and barren sands, Wand’ring in exile thro’ the stormy sea, We search in vain for flying Italy.
  • Fair majesty, the refuge and redress Of those whom fate pursues, and wants oppress, You, who your pious offices employ To save the relics of abandon’d Troy; Receive the shipwreck’d on your friendly shore, With hospitable rites relieve the poor; Associate in your town a wand’ring train, And strangers in your palace entertain: What thanks can wretched fugitives return, Who, scatter’d thro’ the world, in exile mourn?
  • We— for myself I speak, and all the name Of Grecians, who to Troy’s destruction came, Omitting those who were in battle slain, Or borne by rolling Simois to the mainNot one but suffer’d, and too dearly bought The prize of honor which in arms he sought; Some doom’d to death, and some in exile driv’n.
  • Myself distress’d, an exile, and unknown, Debarr’d from Europe, and from Asia thrown, In Libyan desarts wander thus alone."
