Virgil: Shall impious soldiers have these new-ploughed grounds?
Translated by Charles Cotton
Men plough, girt with arms; ever delighting in fresh robberies, and living by rapine.
Armati terram exercent, semperque recentes
Convectare juvat praedas; et vivere rapto.
Shall impious soldiers have these new-ploughed grounds?
Impius haec tam culta novalia miles habebit!
