Ad CHRISTINAM Suecorum Reginam nomine
Christina, Arctoï lucida stella poli,
Utque senex armis impiger ora tero ; Invia fatorum dum
per vestigià nitor, Exequor et populi fortia jussa manu. Af tibi submittit frontem reverentior umbra ;
Nec sunt hi vultus Regibus usque truces.
TRANSLATION, from TOLAND's Life of Milton. B В
RIGHT martial maid, queen of the frozen zonega
The northern pole supports thy shining throne; Behold what furrows age and feel can plow, The helmet’s weight oppress’d this wrinkled brow. Through fate's untrodden paths I move, my hands Still act my free-born people's bold commands : Yee this stérn hade to you submits his frowns, Nor are thefe looks always fevere to crowns.
* These verses were sent to Christina Queen of Sweden with Cromwell's picture, and are by some ascribed to Andrew Marvel, as by others to Milton : but I should rather think they were Milton's, being more within his province as Latin Secretary.
A FRAGMENT, from the Italian;
And my mistaking passion thus accuse.
Strive, in rough sound, soft meaning to impart?
And point his purpose at the hearer's heart.
Nymphs of thy native clime, perhaps they cry,
But we must understand ere we comply!
Tell them, 'tis nothing, how, or what, I write ;
And Scorns the lame impertinence of wit.
