Oh Rome ! my country! city of the soul !
The Orphans of the heart must turn to thee

BYRON, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage.

Yet Italy!
Mother of Arts, as once of arms; thy hand
Was then our guardian, and is still our guide

Shall yet redeem thee, and all backwards
Roll the barbarian tide and (sue) to be forgiven
