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

  • Then calm your spirit; I can tell
  • How once, when youth in all my veins
  • Was glowing, blind with rage, I fell
  • On friend and foe in ribald strains.
  • Come, let me change my sour for sweet,
  • And smile complacent as before:
  • Hear me my palinode repeat,
  • And give me back your heart once more.
