    How Rome her own sad Sepulchre appears,
    With nodding arches, broken temples spread!
    The very Tombs now vanish'd like their dead!

I am in Rome! Oft as the morning ray
Visits these eyes, waking at once I cry,
Whence this excess of joy? What has befallen me?

Rush on my mind, a thousand images;
And I spring up as girt to run a race!
