Alban Hills
Monte Sacro
John Nichol (1833–1894)
 
(From Hannibal)

                        THE SACRED Mount,
Crowned with the citadel of Latin Jove,
Hangs o’er Alba’s Lake, and o’er the towers
Older than Rome, their daughter. On its slopes
Aricia smiles, and stately Tusculum.        5
Beneath us Gabii, and, in shrouded sheen,
Regillus, famed for Tarquin’s overthrow.
Northward leans Tibur o’er her cataract,—
Fortress of Sabine wars. Fidenæ there,
And farther, Veii melts into the shade.        10
