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

  • Here shall you quaff beneath the shade
  • Sweet Lesbian draughts that injure none,
  • Nor fear lest Mars the realm invade
  • Of Semele's Thyonian son,
  • Lest Cyrus on a foe too weak
  • Lay the rude hand of wild excess,
  • His passion on your chaplet wreak,
  • Or spoil your undeserving dress.
