Ausonius Lib. Epig.


AUSONIUS LIB. EPIG.

Trinarii quodam currentem in littoris ora
Ante canes leporem caeruleus rapuit;
At lepus: in me omnis terrae pelagique rapina est,
Forsitan et coeli, si canis astra tenet.

ENGLISHED.

On the Sicilian strand a hare well wrought
Before the hounds was by a dog-fish caught;
Quoth she: all rape of sea and earth's on me,
Perhaps of heav'n, if there a dog-star be.

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
