And near, Albano's scarce divided waves

Shine from a sister valley; -- and afar

The Tiber winds, and the broad ocean laves

The Latin coast where sprang the Epic war,

'Arms and the Man,' whose re-ascending star

Rose o'er an empire: -- but beneath thy right

Tully reposed from Rome; -- and where yon bar

Of girdling mountains intercepts the sight

The Sabine farm was till'd, the weary bard's delight.

Pleasure would be found in the view of the coastline, the mountains, and the working farm that's been ploughed, ready for planting.

I believe terror is found in impending war.
