The Mirage
 
Nathan Haskell Dole (1852–1935)
 
 
ACROSS the Bay are low-lying cliffs,
Where stand fishermen’s cottages:
I can barely distinguish them with the naked eye.
But to-day the cliffs are lifted, escarpt,
Perpendicular, mysterious, inaccessible,        5
And those sordid dwellings have become
The magnificent fortified castles of Sea-kings.
