Hoyt & Roberts, comps.  Hoyt’s New Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations.  1922.
Thou hast fair forms that move
  With queenly tread;
Thou hast proud fanes above
  Thy mighty dead.
Yet wears thy Tiber’s shore
  A mournful mien:—
Rome, Rome, thou art no more
  As thou hast been.
        Felicia D. Hemans—Roman Girl’s Song.
Those graceful groves that shade the plain,
Where Tiber rolls majestic to the main,
And flattens, as he runs, the fair campagne.
        Ovid—Metamorphoses. Bk. XIV. Æneas Arrives in Italy. L. 8. Sir Sam’l Garth’s trans.
Draw them to Tiber banks, and weep your tears
Into the channel, till the lowest stream
Do kiss the most exalted shores of all.
        Julius Cæsar. Act I. Sc. 1. L. 63.
