Pagina xi - 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 beautiful, thy waste More rich than other climes' fertility : Thy wreck a glory, and thy ruin graced With an immaculate charm which cannot be defaced.
Pagina 93 - Mantua me genuit, Calabri rapuere, tenet nunc Parthenope : cecini pascua, rura, duces.
Pagina 125 - Mount Vesuvius is covered with beautiful meadows, with the exception of the summit. The latter is indeed for the most part level but quite sterile. For it has an appearance like ashes, and shows rugged rocks of sooty consistency and colour, as if they had been consumed by fire.
