Transcript ^ Q There have been treasures of the seas and isles Brought to the day-god's now forsaken throne ; Thunders have peal'd along the rock-defiles, When the far-echoing battle-horn made known That foes were on their way ! the deep-wind's moan Hath chill'd the invader's heart with secret fear, And from the Sibyl-grottoes, wild and lone, Storms have gone forth, which, in their fierce career, From his bold hand have struck the banner and the spear! The shrine hath srunk ! but thou unchang'd art there ! Mount of the voice and vision, rob'd with dreams ! Unchang'd, and rushing through the radiant air, With thy dark waving pines, and flashing streams, And all thy founts of song ! their bright course teems With inspiration yet; and each dim haze, Or golden cloud which floats around thee, seems As with its mantle veiling from our gaze The mysteries of the past, the gods of elder days ! Away, vain phantasies ! doth less of power Dwell round thy summit, or thy cliffs invest, Though in deep stillness now, the ruin's flower Wave o'er the pillars mouldering on thy breast ? Lift through the free blue heavens thine arrowy crest ! Let the great rocks their solitude regain ! No Delphian lyres now break thy noontide rest With their full chords !—But silent be the strain ! Thou hast a mightier voice to speak th' Eternal's reign ! The above beautiful verses, I have much pride in saying, were written by that accomplished poet Mrs. Hemans, expressly in relation to the picture from which this engraving is made. The lines are published in the appendix to Mrs. Heman's splendid dramatic poem, the Siege of Valencia.—H. W. W.
