    Ada! sole daughter of my house and heart.
          Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, Canto iii. Stanza 1.
5607
    Once more upon the waters! yet once more!
And the waves bound beneath me as a steed
That knows his rider.
          Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, Canto iii. Stanza 2.
5608
    I am as a weed
Flung from the rock, on Ocean’s foam to sail
Where’er the surge may sweep, the tempest’s breath prevail.
          Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, Canto iii. Stanza 2.
5609
    He who grown aged in this world of woe,
In deeds, not years, piercing the depths of life, 1
So that no wonder waits him.
          Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, Canto iii. Stanza 5.
5610
    Years steal
Fire from the mind as vigour from the limb,
And life’s enchanted cup but sparkles near the brim.

5611
    There was a sound of revelry by night,
And Belgium’s capital had gather’d then
Her beauty and her chivalry, and bright
The lamps shone o’er fair women and brave men.
A thousand hearts beat happily; and when
Music arose with its voluptuous swell,
Soft eyes look’d love to eyes which spake again,
And all went merry as a marriage bell.
          Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, Canto iii. Stanza 21.
5612
    But hush! hark! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell!
Did ye not hear it?—No! ’t was but the wind,
Or the car rattling o’er the stony street.
On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.
          Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, Canto iii. Stanza 22.
5613
    He rush’d into the field, and foremost fighting fell.
          Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, Canto iii. Stanza 23.
5614
    And there was mounting in hot haste.
          Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, Canto iii. Stanza 25.
