        LESSON 43 BOADICEA

        BOADICEA

        When the British warrior queen,

        Bleeding from the Roman rods,

        Sought, with an indignant [1] mien [2] ,

        Counsel [3] of her country's gods,

        Sage [4] beneath a spreading oak

        Sat the Druid [5] , hoary [6] chief;

        Every burning word he spoke

        Full of rage, and full of grief.

        Princess! if our aged eyes Weep upon thy matchless wrongs, 'Tis because resentment [7] ties All the terrors of our tongues. Rome shall perish! Write that word In the blood that she has spilt; Perish, hopeless and abhorred [8] , Deep in ruin as in guilt. BOADICEA Rome, for empire far renowned, Tramples on a thousand states; Soon her pride shall kiss the ground. Hark! the Gaul is at her gates! Other Romans shall arise, Heedless of a soldier's name; Sounds, not arms, shall win the prize— Harmony [9] the path to fame. Then the progeny [10] that springs From the forests of our land, Armed with thunder, clad with wings, Shall a wider world command. Regions C?esar never knew Thy posterity [11] shall sway, Where his eagles never flew, None invincible [12] as they.

        Such the bard's [13] prophetic [14] words,

        Pregnant [15] with celestial [16] fire,

        Bending, as he swept the chords

        Of his sweet but awful lyre [17] .

        She, with all a monarch's pride,

        Felt them in her bosom glow;

        Rushed to battle, fought, and died;

        Dying, hurled them at the foe.

        Ruffians, pitiless as proud! Heaven awards the vengeance due; Empire is on us bestowed, Shame and ruin wait for you.

        —WILLIAM COWPER
