Eclogues of Virgil (1908) title fleuron.png


Not rhyme, but rhythm, doth my Muse delight,
So do the rippling wavelets on the strand,
In cadence musical, that whisp'ring break.

1908.

 

NOTA BENE.

 

 

These verses do not pretend to be an original translation of Virgil's poems. They are simply a versification of Mr. J. W. Mackail's excellent prose translation with which a few small liberties have been occasionally taken.
