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

  • Guardian of hill and woodland, Maid,
  • Who to young wives in childbirth's hour
  • Thrice call'd, vouchsafest sovereign aid,
  • O three-form'd power!
  • This pine that shades my cot be thine;
  • Here will I slay, as years come round,
  • A youngling boar, whose tusks design
  • The side-long wound.
