    Book details

Who list the Roman greatness forth to figure, Him needeth not to seek for usage rightO fline, or lead, or rule, or square to measure Her length, her breadth, her deepness and her hight: But him behoves to view in compass round All that theO cean grasps in his long arms, .B eit where th yearly star doth scorch the ground, Or where cold Boreas blows his bitter storms. Rome was th whole world and all the world was Rome :A nd if things named their names do equalize, When land and sea you name, then name ye Rome, And naming Rome ye land and sea comprize! For th ancient plot of Rome displayed plainT he map of all the wide world doth contain. All that which Egypt whilom did devise, All that which Greece their temples to embrave After th I onick, A ttick, Dorick guise, Or Corinth, skilled in curious work to grave: All that Lysippus practick art could form, A pelles wit, or Phidias his skill, Was wont this ancient city to adorn, And heaven itself with her wide wonders fill: AU that which A thens ever brought forth wise Or that which A frick ever brought forth strange, All that which Asia ever had of prise, Was here to see. Omarvellous great change !R ome living was the worlds sole ornament, And dead, is now the worlds sole moniment! Spenser, Ruins of Rente.
