[VER. 31, 32. Millions and millions - Thick as the stars, &c.]
Quam multa in sylvis autumni frigore primo
Lapsa cadunt folia, aut ad terram gurgite ab alto
Quam multae glomerantur aves, &c.
--- Virg. AEn. vi.
With hollow groans, and shrieks, and feeble cries.
Thick as the leaves in autumn strow the woods,
Or fowls, by winter forc'd, forsake the floods,
And wing their hasty flight to happier lands; [Dryden's translation]
