To dare the shock, or mge the rapid race :
Secare with these, through fighting fields we go ; •
Or sdie to Ttay, if Jove assist the R>c

The warrior's fury let this arm sustain ;
Or, if to combat thy bold heart incline,
Take tbou the qx'ar, the chariot's care be mine."
" prince !" ( Lycaon's valiant son replyM)
" As thine the steeds, be thine the task to guide.
Th< horses, pracUsM to their kmU^ command,
SksU bear the rein, and ans^rer to thy hand,
Bot i^ onhappy, we desert the fight.
Thy voiee akme can animate their flii^ht .*
Bse ihall our £Ues be numbered with the dead,
Aad these, the victor^s prise, in triumph led.
Thioe be the guidance then :*with spear and shield
Sfyaelf will chwrgc this terrour of the field."
Aad now both heroes mount the glittering car ;
The bounding conrseia rush amidst the war.
Ihdr fieroe approach bold Sthenelus cspy'd,
Whothos, alarm'd, to great Tydides cry*d :
" friend ! two chiefs of force immense I see,
l^Rsdfiil they come, and bend their rage on thee :
U the brave heir of bold L3rcaon's line,
^ great ^neas, sprung firom race divine !
£saq;h is given to fiune. Ascend thy car ;
Aod ttfc a life, the bulwark of our war."
At this the hero cast a gloomy look,
Fo'doo the chief with acorn; and thus be spoke :
** Me dost thou bid to shun the commg fight ?
Me aoaW'st thon imore to base, inglorious flight ?
Ksov, 'tis not honest in my soul to fear,
Kor was Tydides bom to tremble here.
I bate the cunlbrouB chariot's slow advance,

^vhile my nerves are strong, my force entire,
Th« hoot the fiK, and emulate my sire.
^ihaO yon steeds that fierce to fight convey
Itethreatenhig heroes, bear them both away ;
Oiechiif at least beneath this arm shall die :
SoPalhstellsme, and forbids to fly.

And stem Lycaon's warlike race begun :

The spear may enter where the arrow failU" [sail'd.
He 8aid,then shook the ponderous lance,aiid flung :
On his broad shield the sounding weapon rung,
Pierc'd the tough ocb, and in his cuirass hung. >
" He bleeds ! the pride of Greece !" (the boaster
" Our triumph now the mighty warrior lies !** ^
" Bf istakcn vaunter !** Diomed reply*d ;
" Thy dart has err*d, and now my spear be try*d :
Ye 'scape not both ; one, headlong from his car,
With hostile blood shall glut the god of war."
He spoke, and rixing huri'd his forceful dart.
Which, dri\'en by Pollan, picrc'd a vital part ;
Full in his face it entered, and betwixt
The nose and eye-ball the proud Lycian fixt ;
Crasb'd ail his jaws, and cleft, the tongue within.
Till the brieht point looked out t>eneath the chia.
Headlong he falls, his helmet kuocks the ground ;
Earth groans beneath him, nnd his amis ix^sound ;
Tlie starting coursers tremble with affright;
The soul indignant seeks the realms of night
To guard his slaughtered friend, iEneas flies,
His spear extending where the carcase lies ;
Watchful he wheels, protects it every way,
As the grim lion sulks around his prey.
O'er the faWn trunk his ample shield displayed,
He hides the hero with his mighty shade.
And threats aloud : the Greeks with longing eyes
Behold at distance, but forbear the prize.
Then fierce Tydides stoops ; and from the fields,
Heav'd with vast force, a rocky fhigmcnt wields.
Not two strong men th' enormous weight could raise,
Such men as live m these d« generate dasrs.
He swung it round ; and, gathering strength to
Discharged the ponderous ruin at the foe. [throw,
Where to the hip th' inserttd thigh unites,
Full on the bone the pointed marble lights ;
Through both the tendons broke the rugged stone
And stripped the skin, and crack'd the solid bone.
Sunk on his knees, and staggering with his pains,
Hi^ falling bulk bis herded arms sustains;
Ijost in a dizzy mist the warrior lies ;
A sudden cloud comes swimming o'er his eyes.
Hicrc the brave chief who mighty numbers sway'd,
Oppressed had sunk to death's eternal shade ;
But heavenly Venus, mindful of the love
She bore Anchiscs in th' Idaean grove,
His danger views with anguish and despair,
And guards her ofispring with a mother's care.
About her much-lov'd son her arm"; she throws.
Her arms whose whiteness m.ntch the falling snows,
Screcn'd from the foe behind her shining v.'il.
The swords wave harmless, and the javelins fail :
Safe through the rushing horse, and fcather'd flight
Of sounding bhafts, she bears him from the fight.
Nor Sthenelus, with unassistinj; hands,
RemainM unhendful of his lord's commands :
His panting steeds, reniov'd from out the war.
He fix'd with straightcn'd traces to the car.
Next rushing to the Danlau spoil, dotiins
The heavenly coursers with tlio flou in? manos :
These, in proud triumph to th«-* flf.et convey'd,

Meanwhile (his conquest ravish'd from bis eyes)
Tho rajinj chief in chase of Venus flies :
^'> jrodiless she com(ni!«sion^d to the field,
T;.ki: Pallas dreadful with her sable shield,
O. fjenc Kcllona thundering at the wall,
While flames ascend, and mighty ruins fall ;
(I kocn' soft, combats suit the tender dame.
New to the field, and still a foe to fame,
'l^iroii^h breaking ranks bis furious course he bends.
And at the goddess his i>road lance extends ;
Through her bright veil the daring weapon drove,
TU* anibroMJil veil, which all the prates wove;
Her snowy hand the razing steel profanM,
An I the transparent skin with crimson stain'd.
From the clear vein a stream immortal flow*d.
Such stream as issues from a wounded Ood :
Pure emanation 1 uncorrupted flood ;
I'nlike our gross, diseased, terrestrial blood :
( Fur not the bread of man their life sustains,
"Sot wine's inflaming juice supplies their veins.)
With tc ndcr shrieks the goddess fitPd the place,
And dropped her ofispring from her weak embrace,
^'im Pho&bus took : he casts a cloud around
The fainting chiiff, and wards the mortal wound.
Then, with a voice that shook the vaulted skies,
The king insults tbe goddess as she flies.
•* III with Jove's daughter bloody fights agree.
The field of combat is no scene for thee :
Co, let thy own soft sex employ thy care.
Go, lull the coward, or delude the fair.
Tau.s:ht by this stroke, renounce the war^s alarms,
And learn to tremble at the name of arms.'*
Tvdidcs thus. The goddess seizM with dread,
Confus'd, distracted, from the conflict fled.
To aid her, swift the winged Iris flew,
AVrapi. in a mist above the warring crew.
'Vho queen of lov<i with faded charms she fonnd,
Pale was hor cheek, and lind look'd the wound.
To Mars, who sat remote, they bent their way,
Far on the left, with clouds involved he lay ;
Beside him stood his lance, distainM with gore,
Aud, rciuM with gold, bis foaming steeds before.
Low at hh knee, she beggM, with streaming eyes,
Her brother*tt car, to mount the distant skies,
And shewed tho wound by fierce Tydides given,
A mortal man who dares encounter Heaven.
Stem Mars attentive hears the queen complain,
And to her band commits the golden rein ;
She mounts the seat, oppressed with silent woe,
Driven by the goddess of the painted bow.
The lash resounds, the rapid chariot flies,
Aud in a moment scales the lofty skies :
Thoro stopp'd the car, and there the coursers stood,
Fed by f:ur Iris with ambrosial food.
Bf»fore her mother, love*s bright queen appears,
O^erwhelm'd with anguish, and dissolv'd in tears ;
Slic rais'd her in her arms, beheld her bleed.
And ask*d^ what god had wrought this guilty deed ?
Then she : " This insult from no god I found,
An impious mortal gave the daring wound !
I^cbold the deed «f haughty Diomed !
H'was in the son's defence the mother bled.
The war with Troy mo more the Grecians wage.
But wilh the gods (th' immortal gods) engage."
Dione then : " Thy wrongs with patienc(i bear,
Aud share tho^ griefe inferior powers must share :
TTmiumber'd woes mankind from us sustain,
And men with woes afflict the gods again.
The mighty Jtfars in mortal fetters bound.
And lodged in'brazen dungeons under ground, '
Pull thirteen moons imprisoned roared iA rsiin ;
Otus and Kphialtes held the chain :
Perhaps had perish'd ; had not Hermes' care
Re&tor'd the groaning god to upper air. i
Great Juno's self has bore her weight of pain,
Th' imperial partner of the heavenly reifn ;
Amphitryon's son infix'd the deadly dart;
And fill'd with anguish her immortal heart.
£v>n Heirs grim king Alcides' power confessed.
The shaft fbund entrance in bi^ iron breast ;
To Jove*s high palace for a cure he fled,
Pierc'd in bis own dominions of tbe dead ;
Where Paeon, sprinkling bcarenly balm arouhd,
Assuag'd tbe glowing pangs, and clesM the wound.
Rash, impious man ! to stain tbe blert abodes^
And drench bis arrows in tbe blood oC gods !
" Buttbou (though Pallas orgUthy frantic deed>
Whose spear Ul-lated makes a goddess bleed.
Know thou, whoe'er with heavenly power coi^endi^

From fields of death when late he shall ve«tre.
No infant on ki» knees shall call him sire:

To stretch thee pale and gasping on tbe ground ;
1*hy disUnt wife, .£giale the fair,
Starting from sleep with a distracted air.
Shall rouse thy slatca, and her lost lord deplore.
The brave, the great, the glorious, now no more !"
'Iliis said, she wip'drlbom Venus' wounded palm
Thu sacred ichor, and iMfiis'd the balm.
Juno and Pallas with a smile surveyed,
And thus to Jove began the blue-ey'd maid ;
'* Permit thy daughter, gracious Jove ! to tell
How this mischance the Cyprian queen befell.
As late she try'd with passion to inflame
The tender bosom of a Oreckm dame.
Allured the fair with moving thoughts of joy,
To quit her country for some youth of Troy ;
Tlie clasping Kooe, with golden buckles bound,
Raz'd her soft hand with this lamented wound."
The sire of ffods and men superior smii'd.
And, calling Venus, thus addrest his child :
" Not these, O daughter, are thy proper cares!
Thee milder arts befit, and softer wars :
Sweet smiles are thme, and kind endearing channi.
To Mars and Pallas leave the deeds of ^ras.^
Thus they in Heaven : while on the plaki below
The fierce Tydides cbarg'd his Dardan foe,
Flush'd with celestial blood pufsn'd hb way.
And fearless dar'd the threatening god oCdajr;
Already in his hopes he saw him kUl'd,
Though scretm'd behind Apollo's mighty shield.
Thrice rushing furious, at the chief he stvook ;
His blazing buckler thrice Apollo shook :
He try'd the fourth : when, breaking from the cloud,
A mbre than mortal voice' was beani aknid ;
" O son of Tydeus, cease I be wise and see
How vast the diilbrence of the gods and thee ;
Distance immense! between the powers thai thane
Above, ctcriia], deathless, and- divine,
And mortal man ! a wretch of humble birth,
A short-livM reptile in the dust of Earth."
So spoke the god who darts celestial fires ;
He dreads his fury, and some steps retires*
Then Phccbus bore the chief of Venus' race
To Troy's high fane, and to his holy place ;
latooa there and Pbmbe heal'd the wosmd.
With vigour arm'd him, and with glory oromt'd.

WHh great .€oe«s ; sach the form be bore,
Aad such ia liight the radiant arms he wore.
Afoond the spectre bloody wars are wag'd,
And Greece and Troy with dashing shields engag'd.
BteiDtime on Ilioa's tower Apollo stood.
Aad, calling Mars, thus urg*d the raging God.
" Stem power of anus, by whom the mighty fall ;
Who bath'st in blood, and sbak'st th' embattled
Kse in tby wrath ! to Hell's abhorr'd ^bodes [wall,
Dispatch yon Greek, and vindicate the gods.
Fkst rosy Venus felt bis brutal cage ;
Me next he chargM, and dares all Heaven engagie :
The wretch would brave high Heaven's immortal
Hb triple thunder, and his bolts of fire." [sire.
The god of battle issues on the nlain,
Stiis all the ranks, and fires the Trojan train ;
Ia form like Acamas, the Thracian guide,
Enrag'd, to Troy's retiring cbie& he cry'd :
*' Hov long, ye sons of Priam ! will ye fly,
And uoreveng^d see Priam's people die ?
Sdll aoresisted ^ball the foe destroy,
Aod stretch the slaughtftf to the gates of Troy ?
lo brave .£neas sinu beneath his wound,
Not god-like Hector more in arms rcnowiiM :
Haste all, and take the generous warrior*8 part,'*
He said ; new courage swell'd each hcro*s heart.
8arp«doo first bis ardent soul expressed.
Aod, tam'd to Hector, these bold words express'd :
** Say, chief, is all thy ancient valottr lost ?
Where are thy threats, aod where thy glorious
That propt alone by Priam's race should stand
Troy's sacred walls, nor need a foreign hand ?
Nov, now thy country calls her wanted friends.
And the prund vaunt in just derision ends,
Remote they stand, while alien truops engage.
Like trembling bounds before the lion's rage. -
Far disunt hcaco ( held my wide command.
Where foaming Xanthus laves the Lycian land.
With ample wealth (the wish of morUls) blest,
A beanteuus wife, and infant at her lireast ;
With those 1 left whatever dear could he ;
Greece, if she conquers, nothing wins from ipe :
Yet first in fight niy Lycian bands I cheer,
Aod long to meet this mighty man ye ft ar ;
While Hector idle stands, nor bids the brave
Thdr wive^ their infants, and their altars save.
Haste, warrior, haste ! preserve thy threaten'd
Or one vast bunt of all-involviBg fate [state ;
PaU o'er your towers shall fall, and swee^ away
Sons, sires, and wives, an ondistingoish'd prey.
RoQse all thy Trojans, urge tby aids to fight ;
These claim tby thoughts by day, thy watch by
^th fbrce inoenant the brave Greeks oppose ;
Soch cares tby firiends deserve, and such thy foes."
Stong to the heart the generous Hector hears,
But just reproof with decent silence bears,
From his proud car the prince impetuous springs,
Ob earth be leaps ; his brazen armour rings.
Two shining spem are brandlsh'd in his hands;
Thus arm'd, he animates his drooping bands,
derives thdr ardour, turns their s^ps from flight,
Aad wakes asew the dying flames of fight.
They torn, the stand, the Greeks their fury dare.
Condense their powers, and wait the growing war.
As when, on Ceres' sacred floor, the swain
Spreads the wide fan to clear the golden grain,
Aod the light chaflT, before the breezes borne.
Ascends ia clouds from off the beapy com ;
The gray dost, rising w'lth collected Urindi,
Drives o'er the bam, and whitens all the hinds :
So white with dust the Grecian host appears.
From trampling steeds, and thundering cbariotceif )
The dusky clouds from laboured earth arise.
And roll in smoking volumes to the skies.
Mars hovers o'er them with his sable shield,
And adds new honours to the darken'd field,
Pleas'd with his charge, and ardent to ^Ifi],
In Troy's defence, Apollo's heavenly will :
Soon as from fight the blue-ey'd maid retires.
Each Trojan bosom with new warmth he fires.
And now the god, from forth his sacred fime,
Produc'd .^eas to the shouting train ;
Alive, unharm'd, with all his peers around,
Erect he stood, and vigorous from bis wound :
Inquiries none they made ; the dreadful day .
No pause of words admits, no dull delay ;
Fierce discord storms, Apollo loud exclaims.
Fame calls, Mars thunders, and the field's ia
Stem Diomed with either ^ax stood, [flames.
And great Ulysses, bath'd in hostile blood.
Embodied close, the laboaring Grecian train
The fiercest shock of charging hosts sustain.
Unmov'd and silent, the whole war they wait,
Serenely dreadful, and as fix'd as fate.
So when th' embattled clouds in dark array.
Along the skies their gloomy lines display ;
When now the north his boisterous rage has s^eht.
And peaceful sleeps the liquid element :
The low-hung vapours mutionlcss and still
Hest on the summits of the shaded bill ;
I'ill the mass scatters as the winds arise,
Dispers'd and broken through the ruffled skies.
Nor was the general wanting to his train.
From troop to troop he toils through all the plain.
** Ye Greeks, be men ! the charge of battle bear ;
Your brave associates and yourselves ro'eiw !
Let glorious acts more glorious acts inspire,
And catch from breast to breast the noble fire !
On valour's side the odds of combat lie,
The brave live glorious, or lamented die ;
The wretch who trembles in the field of fame,
Meets death, and worse than death, eternal shame.'*
These words he seconds with his flying lance,
To meet whose point was strong Deicoon's chance,
.TjDcas' friend, and in his native place
Hopour'd and lov*d like Priam's royal race :
I/)ng bad he fought the foremost in the field.
But now the monarch's landc transpicrc'd his shield :
Plis shield too weak the furious dart to stay,
Through his broad belt the weapon forced its way :
The grizzly wound dismissed his soul to Hell,
His arms around him rattled as he fell.
The fierce iEncas, brandishing his blade.
In dust Orsilochus and Chrethon laid.
Whose sire Dio.ieus, wealthy, brave, and great.
In well-built Pherie held his lofty seat :
Sprung from Alpheiis, plenteous stream ! that yields
Increase of harvests to the Pyliau fields.
He got Orsilochus, Dibcleus he.
And these descended in the third degree.
Too early expert in the martial toil,
In sable ships they left their native soil,
V avenge Atrides : now untimely slain,
They fell with glory on the Phrygian plain.
So two young mountain lions, nurs'd with blood.
In deep recesses of the gloomy wood,
Rush fearless to the plains, and uncontrol'd
Depopulate the stallis, and waste the fold ;

Shakes for bis danger, and neglects his own ;
Strock with the thought, should Helen's loi^ be
And all bis country's glorious labours vain.
Already met the threatening heroes stand ;
The spears already tremble in their hand :
In rush'd Antilochus, his aid to bring,
And foil or conquer by the Spartan king,

Brave as he was, and shunned unequal force.
The breathless bodies to the Gre(:ks they drew.

Who sheath'd ih bratiH the Paphlagonians led.
Atrides mark'd him where sublime be stood ;
Fix'd in his throat, the javelin drank his blood.
The faithful Mydon, as he tum'd from fight
Mis flying courser, sunk to endless night:
A broken rock'by Nestor's son was thrown;
His bended arm received the follmg stone.
From his nnml/d hands the ivory-studded reins,
Dropt in the dust, are trail'd along the plains :
Meanwhile his temples feel a deadly wound t
He groans m death, and ponderous sinks to grovind;
Beep drove his helmet in the sands, and there
The head stood fix'd, the quivering legs in air,
Till trampled flat beneath the courser's feet :
The youthful victor numnts his empty seat.
And beam the prize in triumph to the fleet.
Great Hector saw, and raging at the view.
Fours on the Greeks ; the Trojan troops piiriue :
He fires his hobt with animating cries.
And brings along the furies of the skiea.
Mars, stem destroyer ! and Bellona dread,
FUune in the front, and thunder at their head:
This swells the tumult and the rage of fight ;
That shakes a spear that casts a dreadful li^t.
Where Hector march'd, the god of battlea shfai'd.
Now storm*d before him, and now rag'd behind.
Tydides paus'd amidst his full career ;
Then first the hero's manly breast knew fear.
As when some simple swain hb cot forsakes,
And wide through fens an unknown journey takes ^
If chance a swelling brook hit passage stay.
And foam impervious cross the wanderer's way,
Confus'd he stops, a length of country past.
Eyes the rough waves, and, tir'd, returns at last
Amas'd no less the great Tydides stands :
He stay'd, and, turning, thus address'd his bands :
'* No wonder, Greeks ! that all to Hector yield,
Seciu^ of favouring gods, he takes tbe field :
His strokes they second, and avert our spears :
Behold where Mars in mortal arms appears !
Ki'tire then, warriors, but sedate and ttlow !
Retire, but with your faces to the foe.
IVusI not too much your unavailing might ;
*Tis not with Troy, but with the gods ye fight"
Ntm near the Greeks the black battalions drew ;
And first t^o leaders valiant Hector slew :
His force Anchiahis and Moestkes found.
In ev Jry act of glorious war renowa'd ^
In the same car the chieft t4 combnt ride.
And fought united, and united died.
Struck at the sight, the mighty Ajax glows
With thirst of vengeance, and assaults the foes.
His massy spear with matchless fiiry sent.
Through Arophius' belt and heavy belly went :
Amphius Apaesus' happ)r soil posscss'd.
With herds abounding, and with treasure blossM ;
But fote resistless from his country led
The chief, to perish at his people*s head.
Shook with hb foil/ his brazen armour rung,
And fierce, to seize it, conquering Ajax sprung ;
Around his head an iron tempest rain'd ;
A wood of spears his ample shield sustaio'd ;
Beneath one foot the yet-warm corpse be prest.
And drew his javelin from the bleeding breast :
He could no more ; tbe showering darts deny'd
To spoil his glittering arms and plumy pride.
Now foes on foes came pouring on th« field,*
With bristling lances, and compacted shields ;
Till, in the steely circle straiteti'd round,
Forc'd he gives way, and sternly quits the ground.
While thus they strive, Tlepolemus the great,
Urg*d by the force of unresbted fate.
Bums with desire Sarpedon's strength to prove ;
Alcides' oflspring meets the son of Jove.
Sheath'd m bright arms each adverse chief came on,
Jove's great descendant, and hb greater son.
Prepared for combat ere the lance he tossM,
Tbe daring Rhodian vents hb haughty boast :
** What brings thb Lydan counsellor so for.
To tremble at our arms, not muc in war?
Know thy vain self; nor let their flattery move.
Who style thee son of cloud-compelling Jove.
How for unlike those chiefs of race divine,
How vast the dilfiBrence of their deeds and thhae !
Jove got such heroes as my sire, whose soul
No fiear could daunt, nor Earth nor Hell control.
Troy felt bis arm, and yon proud ramparts stand
Rab*d on the ruins of hb vengeful hand :
With six smaH ships, and but a slender train.
He left the town a wide-deserted plain.
But what art thou ? who deedless look'st around^
While unreveng'd thy Lycians bite tbe ground:
Small aid to Troy thy feeble force can be ;
But, wert thou greater, thou must yidd to me.
Pierc'd by my spear, to endless darkness go !

The son of Hercules, the Rhodian guide.
Thus ha4hty spoke. Hie Lycian king reply'd :
** Thy sire, O prince I o'ertum'd theTrqjan state.

Those heavenly steeds the hero sought so for.
False he deUin'd, tbe just reward of war.
Nor so content, the generous chief defy'd.
With base reproaches and unmanly pnde.
But yon, unworthy the high race ycm boast.
Shall raise my glory when thy own b lost :
Now meet thy fote, and, by Sarpedon slain.
Add one more ghost to Pluto's gloomy reign."
He said: both javelins at an bstant/fle/w ;
