Transcript " Here to the famous orators repair, Those ancient, whose resistless eloquence Wielded at will that fierce democracy, Shook the arsenal, and fulmin'd over Greece, To Macedon and Artaxerxes' throne." Milton. " Blue-eyed Athena*! what a dream wert thou! Oh! what a glory hovered o'er thy shrine— Thy hill—where darker error nestles now! Yet art thou hallowed—though no more divine! The worship of all noblest hearts is thine, Tho' the dull Moslem haunts the sacred earth Where sprung the olive o'er its bower of vine, And watched above thine own Cecropia's birth,— Truth, that should chase such dreams, were surely little worth! " For oh! thou art the very purest thought That fable e'er conceived!—and, on thy hill, Thine own blue hill,—where time and Turk have wrought, In vain to break the charm that lingers still,— The heart that owns a better faith, may kneel, Nor wrong his creed, while bending o'er the sod Where gods—and men like gods in act and will— Are made immortal, by the wizard rod Of him whose every thought aspired to be a godf! " Mount of the free—Olympus of the earth! Fair as a temple—lonely as a tomb! Shall the dark robber rear his household hearth Where fabled gods contended for a home— Those bright abstractions of a truth to come? No—by the gift Trcezene's monarch gave %! No—by thy withered olive's early bloom!— The sea-god's offering calls upon thy brave, Mount, and replant the tree—upon the Moslem's grave!" T. K. Hervey. * Minerva. f Phidias,—the noblest of whose works adorn the citadel. t " King of Troezene " was a title given to Neptune, by Jupiter. His gift to the Athenians was a horse, as the symbol of war.
