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

  • O born in Manlius' year with me,
  • Whate'er you bring us, plaint or jest,
  • Or passion and wild revelry,
  • Or, like a gentle wine-jar, rest;
  • Howe'er men call your Massic juice,
  • Its broaching claims a festal day;
  • Come then; Corvinus bids produce
  • A mellower wine, and I obey.
