Spain: Cadiz
Home-thoughts, from the Sea
Robert Browning (1812–1889)
 
NOBLY, nobly Cape Saint Vincent to the northwest died away;
Sunset ran, one glorious blood-red, reeking into Cadiz Bay;
Bluish mid the burning water, full in face Trafalgar lay;
In the dimmest northeast distance, dawned Gibraltar grand and gray;
“Here and here did England help me,—how can I help England?”—say,        5
Whoso turns as I, this evening, turn to God to praise and pray,
While Jove’s planet rises yonder, silent over Africa.
