Excerpt: ...Attollet reducis; bellis praetendet olivas Compositis pax alma suas, terrasque revisens Sedatas niveo virtus lucebit amictu: Volvantur celeres anni! lux purpuret ortum Expectata diu! natures claustra refringens, Nascere, magne puer! fibi primas, ecce, corollas Deproperat tellus, fundit tibi munera, quicquid Carpit Arabs, hortis quiequid frondescit Eois. Altius, en! Lebanon gaudentia culmina tollit, En! summo exultant nutantes vertice sylvae. Mittit aromaticas vallis Saronica nubes, Et juga Carmeli recreant fragrantia coelum. Deserti laetal mollescunt aspera voce Auditur Deus! ecce Deus! reboantia circum Saxa sonant, Deus; ecce Deus! defiectitur aether, Demissumque Deum tellus capit; ardua cedrus, Gloria sylvarum, dominum inclinata salutet. Surgite convalles, tumidi subsidite montes! Sternite saxa viam, rapidi discedite fluctus: En! quem turba diu cecinerunt enthea, vates En! salvator adest; vultus agnoscite caeci Divinos, surdos sacra vox permulceat aures. Ille cutim spissam visus hebetare vetahit, Reclusisque oculis infundet amabile lumen; Obstrictasque diu linguas in carmina solvet. Ille vias vocis pandet, fiexusque liquentis Harmonia: purgata novos mirabitur auris. Accrescunt teneris tactu nova robora nervis: Consuetus fulcro innixus reptare bacilli Nunc saltu capreas, nunc cursu provocat euros. Non planctus, non moesta sonant suspiria; pectus Singultans mulcet, lachrymantes tergit ocellos. Vincla coercebunt luctantem adamantina mortem, Eternoque Orci dominator vulnere languens Invalidi raptos sceptri plorabit honores. Ut qua dulce strepent scatebrae, qua lata virescunt Paseua, qua blandum spirat purissimus aer, Pastor agit peoudes, teneros modo suscipit agnos Et gremio fotis selectas porrigit herbas, Amissas modo quaerit oves, ..show more
