Treasure Island

Horace

(8 December 65 BC – 27 November 8 BC / Italy)

BkI:II To Augustus

The Father’s sent enough dread hail
and snow to earth already, striking
sacred hills with fiery hand,
to scare the city,

and scare the people, lest again
we know Pyrrha’s age of pain
when Proteus his sea-herds drove
across high mountains,

[Hata Bildir]
