THE PRAYER OF BRUTUS, by                    
First Line: Goddess of woods, tremendous in the chase
Last Line: And quires of virgins celebrate thy praise?
Alternate Author Name(s): Quintus Caepio Brutus

Goddess of Woods, tremendous in the chace,
To Mountain-wolves and all the Savage race,
Wide o'er th' aerial Vault extends thy sway,
And o'er th' infernal Regions void of day,
On thy third Reign look down; disclose our Fate,
In what new Nation shall we fix our Seat?
When shall we next thy hallow'd Altars raise,
And Quires of Virgins celebrate thy praise?
