Virgil was regarded by the Romans as their greatest poet, an estimation that subsequent generations have upheld. It is known that one of his teachers was the Epicurean Siro. On the voyage he caught a fever and then returned to Italy but died soon after arrival. His reputation as a poet endures not only for the music and diction of his verse and for his skill in constructing an intricate work on the grand scale but also because he embodied in his poetry aspects of experience and behaviour of permanent significance. Virgil was born of peasant stock, and his love of the Italian countryside and of the people who cultivated it colours all his poetry.

Poem about Virginia. Additional Details: The roses nowhere bloom so white as in Virginia; The sunshine nowhere shines so bright as in Virginia; The birds sing nowhere quite so sweet And nowhere hearts so lightly beat, For heaven and earth both seem to meet Down in Virginia. The days are never quite so long as in Virginia; Nor quite as filled with happy song, as in Virginia; And when my time as come to die, Just take me back and let me lie, Close where the James goes rolling by, Down in Virginia. There is nowhere a land so far as in Virginia; So full of song, so free of care, as in Virginia; And I believe that Happy Land The Lord's prepared for mortal man Is built exactly on the plan of old Virginia.
