And hangs the monumental crown on high.
Vast crowds of vanquish'd nations march along,
Various in arms, in habit, and in tongue.

And there the Rhine submits her swelling tides,
And proud Araxes, whom no bridge could bind.

And Morini, the last of human kind. 972

With joy and wonder fill the hero's thought. 975)

And bears aloft the fame and fortune of his race.
