517. Lucy
iii
  
I TRAVELL'D among unknown men, 
  In lands beyond the sea; 
Nor, England! did I know till then 
  What love I bore to thee. 
 
'Tis past, that melancholy dream!         5
  Nor will I quit thy shore 
A second time; for still I seem 
  To love thee more and more. 
 
Among thy mountains did I feel 
  The joy of my desire;  10
And she I cherish'd turn'd her wheel 
  Beside an English fire. 
 
Thy mornings showed, thy nights conceal'd, 
  The bowers where Lucy played; 
And thine too is the last green field  15
  That Lucy's eyes survey'd.
