Sicut aquæ tremulum labris ubi lumen aheniš
Sole reperceffum, aut radiantis imagine lunæ,
Omnia pervolitat latè loca, jamique sub auras

Reflects the beam that plays upon
The sportive light, uncertain where it falls,
Now strikes the roof, now flashes on the walls.

A. YOU told me, I remember, glory built
On felfish principles, is shame and guilt ;
The deeds that men admiré as half divine,
Stark naught; because corrupt in their design.
Strange doctrine this! that without fcruple tears

Brings down the warrior's trophy to the dust,
And eats into his bloody sword like rust.

Fierce, avaricious, proud, there must be war.
And never meant the rule should be applied
To him that fights with justice on his fide.
