Rivers of Venice
Claudian (c. 370–c. 404)
 
Translated by Joseph Addison

VENETIA’S rivers, summoned all around,
Hear the loud call, and answer to the sound:
Her dropping locks the silver Tessin rears,
The blue transparent Adda next appears,
The rapid Adige then erects her head,        5
And Mincio rising slowly from his bed.
And last Timavus, that, with eager force
From nine wide mouths, comes gushing to his course.
