BY EDWARD BULWER LYTTON
(Lord Lytton)

BOOK III.

"Not to all men Apollo shows himself--
Who sees him--/he/ is great!"
CALLIM. /Ex Hymno in Apollinon/.



CHAPTER I.

"Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music
Creep in our ears--soft stillness and the night
Become the touches of sweet harmony."
SHAKESPEARE.


BOAT SONG ON THE LAKE OF COMO.

I.

The Beautiful Clime!--the Clime of Love!
Thou beautiful Italy!
Like a mother's eyes, the earnest skies
Ever have smiles for thee!
Not a flower that blows, not a beam that glows,
