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

  • Say, would you change for all the wealth possest
  • By rich Achaemenes or Phrygia's heir,
  • Or the full stores of Araby the blest,
  • One lock of her dear hair,
  • While to your burning lips she bends her neck,
  • Or with kind cruelty denies the due
  • She means you not to beg for, but to take,
  • Or snatches it from you?
