NUMBER:5689
AUTHOR:George Gordon Noel Byron, Lord Byron (1788–1824)
QUOTATION:Know ye the land where the cypress and myrtle
  Are emblems of deeds that are done in their clime;
Where the rage of the vulture, the love of the turtle,
  Now melt into sorrow, now madden to crime? 1
ATTRIBUTION:The Bride of Abydos. Canto i. Stanza 1.
 
Note 1.
Know’st thou the land where the lemon-trees bloom,
Where the gold orange glows in the deep thicket’s gloom,
Where a wind ever soft from the blue heaven blows,
And the groves are of laurel and myrtle and rose!
Goethe: Wilhelm Meister. [back]
