Poet's Pilgrimage to Waterloo- Sintra XXII.
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.
