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.
