A LAND

WHICH WAS THE MIGHTIEST IN ITS OLD COMMAND,

AND IS THE LOVELIEST, AND MUST EVER BE

THE MASTER-MOULD OF NATURE'S HEAVENLY HAND;

WHEREIN WERE CAST THE HEROIC AND THE FREE,

THE BEAUTIFUL, THE BRAVE, THE LORDS OF EARTH AND SEA,

THE COMMONWEALTH OF KINGS, THE MEN OF Rome!

AND EVEN SINCE, AND NOW, FAIR ITALY !

THOU ART THE GARDEN OF THE WORLD, THE HOME

OF ALL ART YIELDS, AND NATURE CAN DECREE;

EVEN IN THY DESERT, WHAT IS LIKE TO THEE?

THY VERY WEEDS ARE BEAUTIFU'L, THY WASTE

MORE KICH THAN OTHER CLIMES' FERTILITY;

THY WRECK A GLORY, AND THY RUIN GRACED

WITH AN IMMACULATE CHARM WHICH CANNOT BE DEFACED."

Childe Harold.

“SED NEQUE MEDORUM SUIXA, DITISSIMA TERRA,

NEC PULCHER GANGES, ATQ''E ALRO TURBIDUS HERM'S.
LAUDIBU'S ITALIÆ CERTENT; NO:: BACTRA, NEQUE INDI

HIC VER ADSIDI'I'M ATOLE ALIENIS MENSIBI'S ÆSTAS,

Bis GRAVIDA PECUDES, BIS POMIS ITILIS ARBOR."

Georgics, ii. 135.
