France: Vols. IX–X.  1876–79.
 
Introductory
Queen Mary’s Farewell
Mary Queen of Scots (1542–1587)
 
Anonymous translation

FAREWELL, beloved France, to thee,
        Best native land!
        The cherished strand
That nursed my tender infancy!
 
Farewell, my childhood’s happy day!        5
The bark that bears me thus away
  Bears but the poorer moiety hence;
The nobler half remains with thee,—
  I leave it to thy confidence,
But to remind thee still of me!        10
