suras

Brachia et vultum, teretesque
Integer laudo. Fuge suspicari,
Cujus octavum trepidavit ætas

Claudere lustrum.

Safely I praise her various charms,
Her polish'd limbs, her face, her arms ; –
Have none of jealousy's alarms,

For I am old!

ODE VI.

AD TITUM SEPTIMIUM.

SEPTIMI, Gades aditure mecum, et Cantabrum indoctum juga ferre nostra, et Barbaras Syrtes, ubi Maura semper

Æstuat unda;

Tibur, Argæo positum colono,
Sit meæ sedes utinam senectæ ;
Sit modus lasso maris, et viarum,

Militiæque.

Unde si Parcæ prohibent iniquæ ;
Dulce pellitis ovibus Galesi
Flumen, et regnata petam Laconi

Rura Phalanto.

Ille terrarum mihi præter omnes
Angulus ridet; ubi non Hymetto
Mella decedunt, viridique certat

Bacca Venafro;

Ver ubi longum, tepidasque præbet
Jupiter brumas ; et amicus Aulon
Fertili Baccho minimum Falernis

Invidet uvis.

ODE VI.

TO SEPTIMIUS.

me

SEPTIMIUS ! prompt to go with
Where'er the Spanish foe may be,
Or where the Mauritanian sea

Incessant boils ;

May I at Tibur find, at last,
A safe retreat from wintry blast ;
Where, war's rough hazards being past,

I'll rest from toils.

But if the Fates severe deny,-
To smooth Galesus will I fly,
And seek those lands where, 'neath the sky,

Phalantus reigns.

That corner-spot hath charms for me
Which ne'er in other parts I see ;
Where olives flourish, and the bee

Rich harvest gains ;

There genial spring her blessing pours,
And winter smiles-e'en out of doors ;
Grapes like the rich Falernian stores

Mount Aulon gives.

Ille te mecum locus, et beatæ Postulant arces ; ibi tu calentem Debitâ sparges lacrymâ favillam

Vatis amici.
