  • Rome
    Rome (Lazio)

    SOME levelled hills, a wall, a dome
    That lords its gilded arch and lies,
    While at its base a beggar cries
    For bread, and dies, — and that is Rome.

    Yet Rome is Rome; and Rome she must
    And shall remain beside her gates,
    And tribute take of kings and States,
    Until the stars have fallen to dust.

    Yea, Time on yon campagnian plain
    Has pitched in siege his battle tents;
    And round about her battlements
    Has marched and trumpeted in vain.

    These skies are Rome! The very loam
    Lifts up and speaks in Roman pride;
    And Time, outfaced and still defied,
    Sits by and wags his beard at Rome,

    Rome, 1873.
