THE MONK - A ROMANCE
Somnia, terrores magicos, miracula, fagas,
Nocturnos lemures, portentaque.
Dreams, magic terrors, spells of mighty power,
Witches, and ghosts who rove at midnight hour.
IMITATION OF HORACE
Ep. 20.--B. 1.
Methinks, Oh! vain ill-judging Book,
I see thee cast a wishful look,
Where reputations won and lost are
In famous row called Paternoster.
Incensed to find your precious olio
Buried in unexplored port-folio,
You scorn the prudent lock and key,
And pant well bound and gilt to see
Your Volume in the window set
