Tiber river Quotes, Quotations, and Sayings
3 Tiber river Quotes
Thou hast fair forms that move
With queenly tread;
Thou hast proud fanes above
Thy mighty dread.
Yet wears thy Tiber's shore
A mournful mien:--
Rome, Rome, thou art no more
As thou hast been.
Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans
Quotes , Source: Roman Girl's Song
Those graceful groves that shade the plain,
Where Tiber rolls majestic to the main,
And flattens, as he runs, the fair campagne.
Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
Quotes , Source: Metamorphoses (bk. XIV, Aeneas Arrives in Italy, l. 8), (Sir Samuel Garth's translation)
Go, go, good countrymen, and for this fault
Assemble all the poor men of your sort;
Draw them to the Tiber banks, and weep your tears
Into the channel, till the lowest stream
Do kiss the most exalted shores of all.
