Transcript PAKTHENON OF ATHENS, IN ITS PRESENT STATE. u Eheu ! Camenae non amant diutius Ripas Ilissi; liquit, ah ! templum suum Numen Minervae, vota quo quondam tulit Gens artium bellique praesidi Deae, Praeclara bello, Uteris praeclarior. Abiit sacerdos, virginesque Palladis, Cunctique, sacrum qui frequentabant locum, Ipsius atrum praeter alitem Deae. Haud perfidus qui vitat infortunium, Longas querelas ille nocti concinit, Fractas columnas inter atque imagines, Stratasque turpiter trabes Hymettias. Heu ! Phidiae labor, domusque caelitum, Miraculum mundi, Atticaeque gloria ! Jaces cadaver, attamen sic pulchrior, Quam postera aetas quod struit pulcherrimum." " Alas ! the Muses love no more Ilissus' sweet and classic shore ! Minerva's awful power hath fled, And left her fane untenanted; Where vows and prayers were duly paid Before the wise and warlike Maid, By a proud people, great in war, In wisdom's trophies greater far. The virgin and the priest are gone, And all that lov'd the place—save one ! No fickle friend that turns away From greatness sinking in decay, Minerva's sage and holy bird Still through the nightly watch is heard, Pouring his melancholy song, Of dreary note and echo long, 'Mid fragments of Pentelic stone, And columns fall'n, and altars strown ! Alas ! thou perfect form of grace, Once deem'd of Gods meet dwelling-place ! Thou master-work of Phidias' hands, Thou boast and marvel of all lands! Perish'd thou art, yet fairer so, Than all that later art can show !" J. P.
