Divina Commedia.

And then the organ sounds, and unseen choirs Sing the old Latin hymns of peace and

love, And benedictions of the Holy Ghost; And the melodious bells among the spires O’er all the house-tops and through heaven

above

Proclaim the elevation of the Host !

Divina Commedia.

V.

[ocr errors]

STAR of morning and of liberty !
O bringer of the light whose splendour

shines
Above the darkness of the Apennines,

Forerunner of the day that is to be !
The voices of the city and the sea,
The voices of the mountains and the

pines,
Repeat thy song, till the familiar lines
Are footpaths for the thought of Italy !

Divina Commedia.

Thy fame is blown abroad from all the heights, Through all the nations, and a sound is

heard,
As of a mighty wind, and men devout,
Strangers of Rome, and the new proselytes,
In their own language hear thy wondrous

word,
And many are amazed and many doubt.

A la faveur du sujet,
