THE WALTZ:

AN APOSTROPHIC HYMN.

By Horace Hornem, Esq.



"Qualis in Eurotæ ripis, aut per juga Cynthi,
Exercet Diana choros."

Virgil, Æn. i. 502.

"Such on Eurotas's banks, or Cynthus's height,
Diana seems: and so she charms the sight,
When in the dance the graceful goddess leads
The quire of nymphs, and overtops their heads."

Dryden's Virgil.
