Page 91 - The stream was smooth as glass, we said, 'Arise and let's away : ' The Siren sang beside the boat that in the rushes lay ; And spread the sail, and strong the oar, we gaily took our way. When shall the sandy bar be cross'd ? when shall we find the bay ? The broadening flood swells slowly out o'er cattledotted plains, The stream is strong and turbulent, and dark with heavy rains ; The labourer looks up to see our shallop speed away.
Page 48 - THE FAIR CIRCASSIAN FORTY Viziers saw I go Up to the Seraglio, Burning, each and every man, For the fair Circassian. Ere the morn had disappeared, Every Vizier wore a beard ; Ere the afternoon was born, Every Vizier came back shorn. "Let the man that woos to win Woo with an unhairy chin;" Thus she said, and as she bid Each devoted Vizier did.
