"He with a wand--a slender wand he bore,/ Delineates every action on the shore./ 'Here's Troy,' says he--then draws the walls in sand;/ 'There Simais flows--here my batallions stand./ A field there was'--and then describes the field--/ 'Where Dolon, with rewards deceived, we kill'd/ And thus entrench'd imagine Rhesus lies;/ And here we make his warlike steeds our prize.'/--Much he describes, when a destructive wave/ Wash'd off the slender Troy, and rolling gave/ To Rhesus and his tents one common grave." Ovid. [P. 6.]
