Poet's Pilgrimage to Waterloo - Sintra XXII.


 

In Cintra also have I dwelt erewhile,


That earthly Eden, and have seen at eve


The sea-mists, gathering round its mountain pile,


Whelm with their billows all below, but leave


One pinnacle sole-seen, whereon it stood


Like the Ark on Ararat, above the flood.
