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

  • Or Maia's son, if now awhile
  • In youthful guise we see thee here,
  • Caesar's avenger—such the style
  • Thou deign'st to bear;
  • Late be thy journey home, and long
  • Thy sojourn with Rome's family;
  • Nor let thy wrath at our great wrong
  • Lend wings to fly.
  • Here take our homage, Chief and Sire;
  • Here wreathe with bay thy conquering brow,
  • And bid the prancing Mede retire,
  • Our Caesar thou!
