    Lucrece (Modern)

    And from the strand of Dardan where they fought
    To Simois' reedy banks the red blood ran,
    Whose waves to imitate the battle sought
    With swelling ridges, and their ranks began
    1440To break upon the gallèd shore, and then
    Retire again, till meeting greater ranks
    They join and shoot their foam at Simois' banks.
