I know not how, in other lands,
     The changing seasons come and go;
What splendors fall on Syrian sands,
     What purple lights on Alpine snow!
Nor how the pomp of sunrise waits
     On Venice at her watery gates;
A dream alone to me is Arno's vale,
     And the Alhambra's halls are but a traveller's tale.
