'Courageous Roman, do not steep thy heart (1829)

In such relenting dew of lamentations; (1830)

But kneel with me and help to bear thy part, (1831)

To rouse our Roman gods with invocations, (1832)

That they will suffer these abominations,
Since Rome herself in them doth stand disgraced, (1834)

By our strong arms from forth her fair streets chased.
