Cypress and ivy, weed and wall-flower grown,/ Matted and massed together, hillocks heap'd/ On what were chambers, arches crush'd, columns strown/ In fragments, choked up vaults, and frescoed, steep'd/ In subterranean damps, where the owl peep'd/ Deeming it midnight% Temples, baths, or halls*/ Pronounce who can; for all that learning reap'd/ From her research has been, that these are walls./ Behold the Imperial mount% 'Tis thus the mighty falls. [P. 6.]
