Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, ed.  Poems of Places: An Anthology in 31 Volumes.
Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and Holland: Vols. XIV–XV.  1876–79.
 
Spain: Seville
Sevilla
Joseph Ellis
 
IN after-days I oft shall praise
The towers and flowers of fair Sevilla;
Her sun and shade and busy ways
Graced by the Doñas in mantilla;
Her grand Cathedral’s solemn gloom:        5
Her zephyrs sweet with orange-bloom;
Her patios cool with pure azúl,
And all her Moorish maravilla;
But chief in memory will rule
(As far above as great Orion!)        10
        A sprite or bird
        Which there I heard;
        An English tongue,
        That spake or sung
        In simple sooth        15
        Or careless truth,—
The clear, frank laugh of Dame Carlyon!
