    “Where is the rock of Triumph, the high place
    ⁠Where Rome embraced her heroes?—where the steep
    ⁠Tarpeian?—fittest goal of Treason’s race,
    ⁠The Promontory whence the Traitor’s Leap
    ⁠Cured all ambition? Did the conquerors heap
    ⁠Their spoils here? Yes; and in yon field below,
    ⁠A thousand years of silenced factions sleep—
    ⁠The Forum, where the immortal accents glow,
    And still the eloquent air breathes—burns with Cicero!”

    Ah, Childe Harold – very fitting!
