iv. 15

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121–180)
        I AM 1 at one with everything, O Universe,
              which is well-fitting in thee.
Nothing to me is early or late which is timely with thee.
        All is fruit to me that thy seasons bring.
          O Nature, from thee are all things,        5
              in thee are all things,
              to thee all things return.
        The poet saith, Dear city of Cecrops;
          shall not I say, Dear City of God.
Note 1. Marcus Aurelius, iv. 15. [See 29.] [Trans. R. Bridges.] [back]
