Transcript ATHENS, FROM THE EAST. " Great source of science ! whose immortal name Stands foremost in the glorious roll of Fame ; Here godlike Socrates and Plato shone, And, firm to truth, eternal honour won. The first in Virtue's cause his life resigned, By heaven pronounced the wisest of mankind ; The last foretold the spark of vital fire, The soul's fine essence, never could expire. Here Solon dwelt, the philosophic sage, That fled Pisistratus' vindictive rage. Just Aristides here maintain'd the cause, Whose sacred precepts shine through Solon's laws. Of all her towering structures, now alone, Some scattered columns stand, with weeds o'ergrown P Falconer. << Oh! who can look along thy native sea Nor dwell upon thy name, whate'er the tale, So much its magic must o'er all prevail ? Who that beheld that sun upon thee set, Fair Athens ! could thine evening face forget ?" Byron's Corsair, III. 1223.
