Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, ed.  Poems of Places: An Anthology in 31 Volumes.
Italy: Vols. XI–XIII.  1876–79.
 
Ticino, the River
The River Ticino
Silius Italicus (c. 28–c. 103)
 
Translated by Joseph Addison

SMOOTH and untroubled the Ticinus flows,
And through the crystal stream the shining bottom shows;
Scarce can the sight discover if it moves,
So wondrous slow amidst the shady groves,
And tuneful birds that warble on its sides,        5
Within its gloomy banks the limpid liquor glides.
