Odes

Horace

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

  • Whether in gloom you spend each year,
  • Or through long holydays at ease
  • In grassy nook your spirit cheer
  • With old Falernian vintages,
  • Where poplar pale, and pine-tree high
  • Their hospitable shadows spread
  • Entwined, and panting waters try
  • To hurry down their zigzag bed.
