BOOK IV of VIRGIL'S AENEID.
[DESCRIPTION OF THE NIGHT]
It was then night; the sound and quiet sleep |
Had through the earth the wearied bodies caught;
The woods, the raging seas were fallen to rest;
When that the stars had half their course declined;
The fields whist,1 beasts, and fowls of divers hue,
And what so that in the broad lakes remained,
Or yet among the bushy thicks of brier,
Laid down to sleep by silence of the night
'Gan swage2 their cares, mindless of travails past.
1. Became silent; hushed.
