Don Juan 01-136
Canto the First


'T was midnight-Donna Julia was in bed,
     Sleeping, most probably,-when at her door
Arose a clatter might awake the dead,
     If they had never been awoke before,
And that they have been so we all have read,
     And are to be so, at the least, once more;-
The door was fasten'd, but with voice and fist
First knocks were heard, then "Madam-Madam-hist!

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