Seite 231 - Such Dares was; and such he strode along, And drew the wonder of the gazing throng. His brawny back and ample breast he shows, His lifted arms around his head he throws, And deals in whistling air his empty blows. His match is sought; but, thro* the trembling band, Not one dares answer to the proud demand.
Seite 228 - Acestes' name, The crowded shore with acclamations fill, Part to behold and part to prove their skill. And first the gifts in public view they place, Green...
