Don Juan 01-122
Canto the First


We'll talk of that anon.-'T is sweet to hear
     At midnight on the blue and moonlit deep
The song and oar of Adria's gondolier,
     By distance mellow'd, o'er the waters sweep;
'T is sweet to see the evening star appear;
     'T is sweet to listen as the night-winds creep
From leaf to leaf; 't is sweet to view on high
The rainbow, based on ocean, span the sky.

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron (1788-1824) ByronLong
