IX.

The eye may well be glad that looks
     Where Pharpar's fountains rise and fall;
But he who sees his native brooks
     Laugh in the sun, has seen them all.
The marble palaces of Ind
     Rise round him in the snow and wind;
From his lone sweetbrier Persian Hafiz smiles,
     And Rome's cathedral awe is in his woodland aisles.
