FRAZER [1] Come, warlike Mars; lay down thy shield and spear for a brief space, and from thy helmet loose thy glistering locks. Haply thou mayest ask, What has a poet to do with Mars? From thee the month which now I sing doth take its name. Thyself dost see that fierce wars are waged by Minerva’s hands. Book II: Introduction. January is done, and the year advances with my song. As the second month runs, so let the second book. For the first time, my verses, sail with more canvas, Your theme, I recall, has been slight till now. I found you ready enough servants of love, When I toyed with poetry in my first youth.   Ovid: Fasti Book 3 (Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics) S. J. Heyworth. out of 5 stars 1.
