TIBER RIVER
[ Also see Italy Rivers Rome ]

Thou hast fair forms that move
  With queenly tread;
    Thou hast proud fanes above
      Thy mighty dread.
        Yet wears thy Tiber's shore
          A mournful mien:--
            Rome, Rome, thou art no more
              As thou hast been.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans, Roman Girl's Song

Those graceful groves that shade the plain,
  Where Tiber rolls majestic to the main,
    And flattens, as he runs, the fair campagne.
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Metamorphoses
         (bk. XIV, Aeneas Arrives in Italy, l. 8),
        (Sir Samuel Garth's translation)

Go, go, good countrymen, and for this fault
  Assemble all the poor men of your sort;
    Draw them to the Tiber banks, and weep your tears
      Into the channel, till the lowest stream
        Do kiss the most exalted shores of all.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Flavius at I, i)
