80 At ultimi nepotes, Et cordatior ætas Judicia rebus æquiora forsitan Adhibebit integro sinu. Tum livore fepulto, $i quid meremur sana posteritas fciet Roülio favente.
Ode tribus constat Strophis, totidémque Antiftrophis, una demum Epodo clausis, quas, tametsi omnes nec versuum numero, nec certis ubique colis exacte respondeant, ita tamen secuiinus, commodè legendi, potiùs, quàm ad antiquos concinendi modos rationem fpectantes. Alioquin hoc genus reétiùs fortasse dici monostrophicum debuerat. Metra partim sunt xati oxíow, partim amorAupiva. Phalencia quæ funt Spondæum tertio loco bis admittunt, quod idem in fecundo loco Catullus ad libitum fecit.
Ad CHRISTINAM Suecorum Reginam nomine
Christina, Arctoï lucida stella poli,
Utque fenex armis impiger ora tero;
Exequor et populi fortia juffa manu.
Nec sunt hi vultus Regibus usque truces.
TRANSLATION, from TOLAND's Life of MILTON,
RIGHT martial maid, queen of the frozen zone,
The northern pole supports thy shining throne;
* These verses were sent to Christina Queen of Sweden with Cromwell's picture, and are by some ascribed to Andrew Marvel, as by others to Milton : but I should rather think they were Milton's, being more within his province as Latin Secretary,
A FRAGMENT, from the Italian;
The Mort-pac'd efforts of a trammeld Musé;
And my mistaking passion thus accuse.
Strive, in rough sound, soft meaning to impart?
And point his purpose at the hearer's heart.
Nymphs of thy native clime, perhaps—they cry,
But we must understand ere we comply!
Tell them, 'tis nothing, how, or what, I write
And scorns the lame impertinence of wit.
