Original text and translations
Where nothing dwelt but beasts of prey,
Or men as fierce and wild as they,
He bids th'oprest and poor repair,
And builds them towns and cities there.
They sow the fields and trees they plant
whose yearly fruit supplies their want.
Their race grow up from fruitful stocks;
Their wealth increases with their flocks.
