- The snow is fled
- the trees their leaves put on, The fields their green:
- owns the change, and rivers lessening run. Their banks between.
- the Nymphs and Graces in the meads The dance essay:
"No 'scaping death" proclaims the year, that speeds
This sweet spring day.
Frosts yield to zephyrs; Summer drives out Spring,
To vanish, when
Rich Autumn sheds his fruits; round wheels the ring,--
Yet the swift moons repair Heaven's detriment:
We, soon as thrust
- good Aeneas, Tullus, Ancus went, What are we? dust.
Can Hope assure you one more day to live
From powers above?
You rescue from your heir whate'er you give
The self you love.
When life is o'er, and Minos has rehearsed
The grand last doom,
Not birth, nor eloquence, nor worth, shall burst
Not Dian's self can chaste Hippolytus
To life recall,
Nor Theseus free his loved Pirithous
From Lethe's thrall.
