Odes

Horace

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

  • Fish feel the narrowing of the main
  • From sunken piles, while on the strand
  • Contractors with their busy train
  • Let down huge stones, and lords of land
  • Affect the sea: but fierce Alarm
  • Can clamber to the master's side:
  • Black Cares can up ihe galley swarm,
  • And close behind the horseman ride.
