Italy: Vols. XI–XIII.  1876–79.
 
Apennines, The
Passage of the Apennines
Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
 
LISTEN, listen, Mary mine,
To the whisper of the Apennine;
It bursts on the roof like the thunder’s roar,
Or like the sea on a northern shore,
Heard in its raging ebb and flow        5
By the captives pent in the cave below.
The Apennine in the light of day
Is a mighty mountain dim and gray,
Which between the earth and sky doth lay;
But when night comes, a chaos dread        10
On the dim starlight then is spread,
And the Apennine walks abroad with the storm.
