Excerpt from Hannibal: A Historical Drama
Rides in safe anchorage There is a time For hardihood but no wise mariner Steers with rent sails o'er Syrtes, or sets west T' affront the blasts of Boreas We must stoop 'tis present policy - to humour Rome. When some ill wind from Gaul distracts her force We may restretch our canvass, undistressed By strifes that dwarf our commerce, tax our powers, And leave us poorer for our victories.
