ROM realmıs of Hyperborean ice,

To the twin Capes of Hope and Horn,
From fragrant fields of orient spice,

To Afric's sabie sons forlorn ;-
From shore to shore from world to world; //

Amain their urnis the tempests pour,

And scarce can quench the red-hair'd blaze.

Or else the Poet lies.
But the dread spirit of the storm,

Though cloth'd in terrors wild,
The work of love is destin'd to perform,

Of courtesy and mercy mild.
