  1. [Imitated] From Propertius. Lib: 2: Eleg: 1.  (21 results)
              1    You ask why thus my loves I still rehearse,
              3    From Cynthia all that in my numbers shines;

            76    Ah! let her ever my desires control.
            78    From her loved door may my pale corse be borne.
            87    The hand that can my captive heart release
            99    When then my fates that breath they gave shall claim,
          101    A little verse, my all that shall remain,
          105    Then to my quiet urn awhile draw near,

            27    Prophetic of my woes with direful hand
            34    Amain, my deadly foes, headed by this
            42    My children (they were with me) sleep as yet
            46    Or thou dost mourn to think what my poor heart
            52    And fastening bolts. Then on my children's eyes
            53    Speechless my sight I fixed, nor wept, for all
            55    They wept; and first my little dear Anselmo
            62    My sons, and in four faces saw my own
            69    My struggling sorrow, nor to heighten theirs.
            73    When Gaddo, at my feet outstretched, imploring
            74    In vain my help, expired; ere the sixth morn

          119    My great revenge shall rise; or say we sound
          154    These hated walls that seem to mock my shame,

          168    My guilt, the blacker his ingratitude.
          173    If from the realms of night my voice ye hear,
          175    Accept my vengeance. Though by me ye bled,
          176    He was the cause. My love, my fears for him,
          177    Dried the soft springs of pity in my heart,
          179    Yet if your injured shades demand my fate,
          188    Dispel, my fair, with smiles, the timorous cloud
