MEN AND WOMEN.

LOVE AMONG THE RUINS.

1.

WHERE the quiet-coloured end of evening smiles Miles and miles

On the solitary pastures where our sheep

Half-asleep

Tinkle homeward thro' the twilight, stray or stop As they crop

2.

Was the site once of a city great and gay,
(So they say)

Of our country's very capital, its prince
Ages since

Held his court in, gathered councils, wielding far

Peace or war.
