TO VIRGIL.

I salute thee, Mantovano, WRITTEN AT THE REQUEST OF THE MANTUANS

I that loved thee since my day began, FOR THE NINETEENTH CENTENARY OF VIR

Wielder of the stateliest measure GIL'S DEATH.

ever moulded by the lips of man. Nineteenth Century.

ALFRED TENNYSON. Roman Virgil, thou that singest

Ilion's lofty temples robed in fire, Ilion falling, Rome arising, wars, and filial faith, and Dido's pyre;

TWO YEARS AFTER.

The winter morning as I write -
II.

In the grim city's gloomy light,
Landscape-lover, lord of language

Midst fogs that choke street, river, church, more than he that sang the Works and And the fast-falling flakes besmirch –

Days,
All the chosen coin of fancy

How pure o'er that far country-side
flashing out from many a golden phrase ; Must gleam the snow-waste drifted wide ;

In my mind's eye I see it rolled
III.

O'er stream-gashed glen and brambly wold; Thou that singest wheat and woodland, tilth and vineyard, hive and horse and O'er wheat-sown slope and climbing lane, herd :

And ridge that bounds the battle plain; All the charm of all the Muses

And orchard, lawn, and garden sward often flowering in a lonely word; That same white raiment of the Lord !

The church stands on the woodland hill, Poet of the happy Tityrus

The pine-trees fence the churchyard still ;

Eastward it looks, that home of hers,
piping underneath his beechen bowers; The robin whistles in her firs.
Poet of the poet-satyr
whom the laughing shepherd bound with all seems the same ; but where is she
flowers;

Whose name is breathed from brake and tree?
Where lives and soars that noblest one

It raised our life to look upon ?
Chanter of the Pollio, glorying

in the blissful years again to be, Shall spring-tide wake the world again, Summers of the snakeless meadow,

And summer light the eyes of men ?
unlaborious earth and oarless sea; Shall throstles thrill her oaken glade,

The primrose star her hazel shade?
VI.
Thou that seëst Universal

This icy mist, these clouds of gray,
Nature moved by Universal mind;

Will they not all be wept away.

And western airs blow kindly through
Thou majestic in thy sadness
at the doubtful doom of human kind;

Large lucid skies of tender blue ?
And shall no vernal dawn await

The hopes by death left desolate?
Light among the vanish'd ages;

No shining angel brood above star that gildest yet this phantom shore; The sepulchre of human love? Golden branch amid the shadows, kings and realms that pass to rise no That brain of strength, that heart of fire, more ;

That liquid voice, a living lyre

Do not these vibrate, throb, and burn
VIII.

Where the lost lights of time return?
Now thy Forum roars no longer,

fallen every purple Cæsar's dome - The aspiration, passion, power, Tho' thine ocean-roll of rhythm

That crowd with fate a mortal hour, sound forever of Imperial Rome - Are these crude seeds no bloom may bless,

Beginnings bright of emptiness?
