Don Juan 05-004
Canto the Fifth

I have a passion for the name of "Mary,"
     For once it was a magic sound to me;
And still it half calls up the realms of fairy,
     Where I beheld what never was to be;
All feelings changed, but this was last to vary,
     A spell from which even yet I am not quite free:
But I grow sad -- and let a tale grow cold,
Which must not be pathetically told.

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron (1788-1824)
