Odes

Horace

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

  • Yet the swift moons repair Heaven's detriment:
  • We, soon as thrust
  • Where good Aeneas, Tullus, Ancus went,
  • What are we? dust.
  • Can Hope assure you one more day to live
  • From powers above?
  • You rescue from your heir whate'er you give
  • The self you love.
