Transcript THEBES, IN BCEOTIA. Quis satis Thebas fleat? Ferax Deorum tellus, quern dominum tremit ? E cujus arvis, eque foecundo sinu Stricto juventus orta cum ferro stetit; Cuj usque muros natus Amphion Jove Struxit canoro saxa modulatu trahens; In cujus urbem non semel Divom pater Caelo relicto, venit; haec quae caelites Recepit, et quae fecit, et (fas sit loqui) Fortasse faciet, sordido premitur jugo. Cadmea proles, civis atque Ophionis, Quo decidistis ? tremitis ignavum exsulem Suis carentem finibus, nostris gravem; Qui scelera terra, quique persequitur mari, Tenetque Thebas exul Herculeas Lycus."—Seneca. " Thebes ! who shall weep aright for thee, No more the valiant and the free ? Thou cradle-land of many a god, Stoop'st thou beneath a tyrant's rod ? She,—from whose fields together rose, The sworded bands of spell-born foes,— Whose walls to rear, Amphion's tones Led, as in dance, the charmed stones;— For whom so oft eternal Jove Hath left his radiant seats above:— To whom in former years was giv'n, To shrine her favourites in heav'n; Who, haply, gods will yet create,— She bows beneath the cankering weight Of iron bondage and disgrace. How are ye fallen, Cadmean race! Shall a proud outcast vilely spurn Your freedom's rights, ye dragon-born ? Shall he usurp your country's throne, A sordid exile from his own ? Whose crimes affront the land and main, Shall he Herculean Thebes profane Y9 J. P.
