Asia Minor: Troy
Troy
Evenus
 
Translated by C. Merivale

TIME’S ashes, on my turrets shed,
        Have worn their pride away;
I am that Ilion of whom men have read
        In Homer’s living lay.
 
No more shall Argive sword and spear        5
        My brazen bulwark shake;
But in the voice of nations loud and clear
        My monument I make.
