Don Juan 05-003
Canto the Fifth

The European with the Asian shore
     Sprinkled with palaces; the ocean stream
Here and there studded with a seventy-four;
     Sophia's cupola with golden gleam;
The cypress groves; Olympus high and hoar;
     The twelve isles, and the more than I could dream,
Far less describe, present the very view
Which charm'd the charming Mary Montagu.

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron (1788-1824)
