Odes

Horace

Horace, creator; Conington, John, 1825-1869, editor

  • Well skill'd to bend the Serian bow
  • His father carried? Who shall say
  • That rivers may not uphill flow,
  • And Tiber's self return one day,
  • If you would change Panaetius' works,
  • That costly purchase, and the clan
  • Of Socrates, for shields and dirks,
  • Whom once we thought a saner man?
