          HORACE, ODES I 21.
            Dianam tenerae dicile virgines.
         MARY ELEANOR STICKNEY, '09.
Ye tender maidens, of Diana sing,
  Ye youths, of unshorn Cynthius above,
And of Latona, whom great Jove the king
  Of gods immortal doth most deeply love.
Sing praise to her who doth in streams delight,
  And woodland foliage towering toward the sky
On Algidus' cool slope, or Cragus bright,
  Or the dark woods of Erymanthus high.
Ye youths, with equal praises fill the air
  For Tempe, and for Delos, where was born
Apollo the divine, whose shoulder fair
  The quiver and fraternal lyre adorn.
The woes of war and plague and famine's curse
  From Caesar and the people whom he leads
In answer to your prayer he will disperse
  And turn against the Britons and the Medes.
