Not illustrated. 1899 Excerpt: ...propter Flora quibus mater praespargens ante viai cuncta coloribus egregiis et odoribus opplet. inde loci sequitur calor aridus et comes una pulverulenta Ceres et etesia flabra aquilonum. inde autumnus adit graditur simul Euhius Euan. inde aliae tempestates ventique secuntur, altitonans Volturnus et auster fulmine pollens. tandem bruma nives adfert pigrumque rigorem reddit: hiemps sequitur crepitans hanc dentibus algu (V. 737).

The newborn child lies naked on the ground ut saevis proiectus ab undis navita (V. 222). Metaphorically are found maeriae tanto in pelago (II. 550); a sea of trouble is expressed in fluctibus e tantis (V. 11); and the sea of life in idque minutatim vitam provexit in altum et belli magnos commovit funditus aestus (V. 1434). spring and autumn are fretus...
