Sollicita sed buic distribuantur Acu.
Scilicet ut nemo est illa reverentior aequi;
Haud ipsas igitur fert sine Lege Comas.
Gloria sylvarum pariter communis utrique
Est, & perpetuae Virginitatis Honos.
Sic quoque Nympharum supereminet Agmina collo,
Fertque Choros Cynthi per Juga, per Nives.
Haud aliter pariles Ciliorum contrahit Arcus
Acribus ast Oculis tela subesse putes.

...Syringa fugacem,
Hoc erat ut Calamum posset reperire Sonorum.

Note: Desunt multa. Nec tu, Opisex horti, grato sine carmine abibis:
Qui brevibus plantis, & laeto flore, notasti
Crescentes horas, atque intervalla diei.
Sol ibi candidior fragrantia Signa pererrat;
Proque truci Tauro, stricto pro forcipe Cancri,

Horologo sua pensa thymo Signare videtur.

by Trumbull, John their obliging temper
The peopling your new-fangled empire,
While every British act and canon
Stood forth your causa sine qua non.
Who'd seen, except for these restraints,
Your witches, quakers, whigs and saints,

And drive out heathens where you could;
On these mild terms, that, ...Read More

by Tennyson, Alfred Lord one love 
Than pairs of wedlock; she you walked with, she 
You talked with, whole nights long, up in the tower, 
Of sine and arc, spheroïd and azimuth, 
And right ascension, Heaven knows what; and now 
A word, but one, one little kindly word, 
Not one to spare her: out upon you, flint! 
You love nor her, nor me, nor any; nay, 
You shame your mother's judgment too. Not one? 
You will not? well--no heart have you, or such 
As fancies like the vermin in a nut 
Have frett...Read More
