  • Thou Bride of the Ocean
    Venice (Veneto)

    O, city of Adria's murmuring sea,
    What fond recollections cling ever to thee!
    O, sad are the thoughts thy beauty dispelled
    Thou home of the lovely where art long has dwelled!

    Still sleep in thy beauty wrapped ever in fame,
    O, whisper, breathe gently thy ever loved name—
    Still sleep, sleep gently on—
    I sigh not for fortune, the world though it blame,
    I love thee thou bride of the ocean.
