Don Juan 04-079
Canto the Fourth


Don Juan, here permitted to emerge
 From his dull cabin, found himself a slave;
Forlorn, and gazing on the deep blue surge,
 O'ershadow'd there by many a hero's grave;
Weak still with loss of blood, he scarce could urge
 A few brief questions; and the answers gave
No very satisfactory information
About his past or present situation.

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron (1788-1824)
