C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Unplaced Fragments
By Ennius (239–169 B.C.)
 
Alliteration

                Against the walls
Many a mighty machine in menace moves.
 
An Homeric Simile

Then as a well-fed horse in lordly pride
Breaking his halter from the stable darts,
Rushes across the joyous azure fields        5
With an exultant heart, oft shakes his mane,
While by the eager breath from his hot breast
The white foam far is flung.
 
A Vaulting Boast

Valiant the Romans as the heavens are high.
