Lombardy
James Thomson (1700–1748)
 
(From Liberty)

BEYOND the rugged Apennines, that roll
Far through Italian bounds their wavy tops,
My path, too, I with public blessings strowed;
Free states and cities, where the Lombard plain,
In spite of culture negligent and gross,        5
From her deep bosom pours unbidden joys,
And green o’er all the land a garden spreads.
