Welcome, welcomo, ye dark blue wares !

And, when you fail my sight, Welcome, ye deserts, and ye caves!

My native Land Good Night !"

Written in passing ibe Ambracian Gulpb,

November 14, 1809.. Through cloudless skies, in silvery sheen,

Full beams the moon on Acliuin's coast : And on these waves for Egypt's queen

The ancient world was won and lost. And now upon the scene I look,

The azure grave of many a Roman; Where stern Ambition once forsook

His wavering crown to follow woman. Florence! whom I will love as well

As ever yet was said or sung) (Since Orpheus sang his spouse from hell)

Whilst thou art tair and I am young; Sweet Florence! those were pleasant times,

When worlds were staked or ladies' eyes: Had bards as many realms as rhymes,

Thy charms might raise new. Anthonies. Though Fate forbids, such things to be,

Yet, by thine eyes and ringlets curla! I cannot lose a world for thee,

Buc would not lose thee for a world!

Clouds burst, skies Alash, oh, dreadful hour!

More fiercely pours the storm!
Yet bere one thought has still the power

To keep my bosom While wand'ring through each broken path,

O'er brake and craggy brow; While elements exhaust their wrath,

Swecc. Florence, where art thou ? Not on the sea, not on the sea,

Thy bark hach long been gone:
Ob, may the storm that pours on me,

Bow down my head alone!
Full swiftly blew the swift Siroc,
5. When last I pressed thy lip;
And long ere now with foaming shock

Impellid thy gallant ship.
Now thou art safe : nay, long ere now

Hast trod the shore of Spain;
'Twere hard if ought so fair as thoa

Should linger on the main. And since I now remember thee

In darkness and in dread,
As in those hours of revelry

Which mirth and music sped ;
Do thou amidst the fair white walls,

If Cadiz yet be free,
At times from out her lattic'd halls

Look o'er the dark blue sea ;
Then think upon Calypso's isles

Endear'd by days gone by,
To others give a thousand smiles,

To me a single sigh.
And when the admiring circle niark

The paleness of thy face,
A half torm'd tear, a transient spark

Of melancholy grace,
Again chou'lt smile, and blushing shun

Some coxcomb's raillery ;
Nor own for once thou chought'st of one

Who ever thinks on thee.
Though smile and sigh alike are vain,

When sever'd hearts repine,
My spirit dies, o'er mount and main,

And niouras in search of thing.


STANZAS Composed October 11th, 1809, during the

night ; in a thunder-storm, when the guides had lost the road to Zitsa, near the range. of muuntains formerly called Pindus, in

Chill and mirk is the nightly blast,

Where Produs' mountains rise,
And angry clouds are pouring fast

The vengeance of the skies.
Our guides are gone, our hope is lost,

And lightnings, as they play,
But show where rocks our path have crost,

Or gild the torrent's spray.
Is yon a cot I saw, though low?

When lightning broke the gloom-
How welcome were its shade Imah, no!

'Tis but a Turkish comb.
Through sounds of foaming waterfalls

I hear a voice exclaimi
My way worn countryman, who calls

Un distant England's name.
A shot is fir'd-by foe or friend?

Another is to tell
The mountain-peasants to descend,

And lead us where they dwell.
Oh! who in such a night will dase

To tenipt the wilaerness?
And why 'mid thunder peals can hear

Our signal of distress?
And who that heard our shouts would rise

To try the dubious road?
Nor rather deem trom nigboy crios.

Thas outlaws were abroad.


Written at Arbens, January 16, 1810. The spell is broke, the charm is flown!

Thus is it with life's fitful fever: We madly smile when we should groan ;

Delirium is our best deceiver. Each lucid interval of thought

Recalls the woes of Nature's charter, And he that acts as wise men ought,

But lives, as saints have died, a martyr.

Writton after swimming from Sestos to Abydos,

May 9, 1810.
If in the month of dark December

Leander, who was nightly wont (Whal maid will not the tale remember?)

To cross thy sucam, broad Hellespont !

jf when the wintry tempest roard

At the sound of my trumpet, breaking He sped ro Hero, nothing loth,

Your sleep, oh, join with me! And thus of old thy current poured,

And the seven-billd city seeking, Fair Venus ! how I pity both!

Fight, conquer, till we're free. For me, degenerate modern wretch,

Sons of Greeks, &c. Though in the genial month of May, Sparta, Sparta, why in slumbers My dripping limbs 1 faintly stretch,

Lethargic dost thou lie ! And think I've done a feat to-day.

Awake, and join thy numbers But since he cross'd the rapid tide,

With Athens, old ally! According to the doubtful story,

Leonidas recalling, To woo, and Lord knows what beside,

That chief of ancient song, And swam for Love, as I for Glory;

Who sav'd ye once from falling, *Twere hard to say who fared the best :

The terrible! the strong! Sad mortals! thus the Gods still plague you!

„ Who made that bold diversion He lost his labour, I my jest ;

In old Thermopylæ, For lie was drown'd, and I've the ague.

And warring with the Persian

To keep his country free;

With bis three hundred waging
Zán mã, rás ayawa.

The battle long be stood,
Maid of Athens, ere we part,

And like a lion raging, Give, oh! give, me back my heart !

Expir'd in seas of blood. Or, since that has left my breast,

Sons of Greeks, &e. Keep it now, and take the rest ! Hear me vow before I go,

Translation of tbe Romaic Song, zón pă, các draws.

" Mhevä Mas 76 crépláre

“ 'pallal. Xándi, &c. By those tresses unconfind, .

The song from which this is taken is a Woo'd by each Ægean wind;

great favourite with the young girls ar By those lids whose jetty fringe

Athens.-The air is plaintive aod pretty. Kiss thy soft checks blooming tinge ; I enter thy garden of roses, By those wild eyes like the roe,

Belov'd and fair Haideć, Zán mã, cás araw.

Each morning where Flora reposes, By that lip I long to taste;

For surely I see her in thee. By that zone-encircl'd waist;

Oh, Lovely! thus-low I implore thee, By all the token-flowers that tell,

· Receive this fond truth from my tongue, What words can never speak so well; Which utters its song to adore thee, By Love's alternate joy and woe,

Yet trembles for what it has sung ; Zara , các cydõ. .

As the branch, at the bidding of Nature, Maid of Athens! I am gone :

Adds fragrance and fruit to the tree, Think of me, sweet! when alone.

Through her eyes, through her every feature, Though I Ay to Islambol,

Shines the soul of the young Haidee. Athens holds my heart and soul.

But the loveliest garden grows hateful Can I cease to love thee? No!

When Love has abandon's the bowersZa Mỹ, các da.

Bring me hemlock-since mine is ungrateful,

That herb is more fragrant than flowers. Translation of tbe famous Greek War Song, The poison, when pour'd from the chalice, Δεύτε παίδες των Ελλήνων,

Will deeply embitrer the bowl ; Written by Riga, wba perished in tbe attempt to But, when drunk to escape from thy malice, revolutionize Grecte.

The drauglit shall be sweet to my soul. Sons of the Greeks, arise!

Too crue! in vain I implore thee The glorious hour's gone forth,

My heart from those horrors to save : And, worthy of such ties,

Will nought to my bosom restore chee?
Display who gave us birchi.

Theo open the gates of the grave!

As the chief who to combat advances
Sons of Greeks ! let us go

Secure of his conquest before, jn armis against the foe.

Thus thou, with those eyes for thy lances, Till their hated blood shall Row

Hlas pierc'd through my heart to its core. In a river past our feet.

Ah, leil me, diy soul! must I perish Then, manfully despising

by pangs which a smile would dispel ? The Turkishi tyrant's goke,

Would the hope, which thou once bad'st inc Let your country see you rising,

cherish, And all her chains are bruke.

For torture repay me too well? Erave shades of chiefs and sages,

Now sad is the garden of roses, Behold the coming strife!

Peloved but false Haidcé! " Hellenes of past ages,

There Flora all wither'd reposes, Oh, start again to life!

And mourns o'er thine absence with me END OF VOLUME XXXIV.
