Welcome, welcomo, ye dark blue wares !
And, when you fail my sight, Welcome, ye deserts, and ye caves!
My native Land Good Night !"
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!
To keep my bosom warm.mobi 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:
Bow down my head alone!
Impellid thy gallant ship.
Hast trod the shore of Spain;
Should linger on the main. And since I now remember thee
In darkness and in dread,
Which mirth and music sped ;
If Cadiz yet be free,
Look o'er the dark blue sea ;
Endear'd by days gone by,
To me a single sigh.
The paleness of thy face,
Of melancholy grace,
Some coxcomb's raillery ;
Who ever thinks on thee.
When sever'd hearts repine,
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
Where Produs' mountains rise,
The vengeance of the skies.
And lightnings, as they play,
Or gild the torrent's spray.
When lightning broke the gloom-
'Tis but a Turkish comb.
I hear a voice exclaimi
Un distant England's name.
Another is to tell
And lead us where they dwell.
To tenipt the wilaerness?
Our signal of distress?
To try the dubious road?
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.
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
The battle long be stood,
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,

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 :
