Aeneid

Virgil

Vergil. Aeneid. John Dryden. trans.

  1. Such was the blazoned shield his mother gave
  2. from Vulcan's forge; which with astonished eyes
  3. Aeneas viewed, and scanned with joyful mind
  4. such shadows of an unknown age to be;
  5. then on his shoulder for a burden bore
  6. the destined mighty deeds of all his sons.
