Albania
Lord Byron (1788–1824)
 
(From Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage)

  LAND of Albania! where Iskander rose,
  Theme of the young, and beacon of the wise,
  And he, his namesake, whose oft-baffled foes
  Shrunk from his deeds of chivalrous emprize:
  Land of Albania! let me bend mine eyes        5
  On thee, thou rugged nurse of savage men!
  The cross descends, thy minarets arise,
  And the pale crescent sparkles in the glen,
Through many a cypress-grove within each city’s ken.
