Italy: Vols. XI–XIII.  1876–79.
 
Rome, the Campagna
Roman Villeggiatura
Silius Italicus (c. 28–c. 103)
 
Translated by Joseph Addison

ALL shun the raging dog-star’s sultry heat,
And from the half-unpeopled town retreat;
Some hid in Nemi’s gloomy forests lie;
To Palestrina some for shelter fly;
Others, to catch the breeze of breathing air,        5
To Tusculum or Algido repair,
Or in moist Tivoli’s retirements find
A cooling shade and a refreshing wind.
