Entrance of Columbus into Barcelona
By Grenville Mellen (1799–1841)
 
LO! on his far-resounding path
  Sink crucifix and crown,
And from high tower and balcony
  The light of Spain looks down,—
For Beauty’s dark, dark virgin eyes        5
  Gleam ceaseless round him now,
As stars from still upheaving skies
  Would new-born from the waves arise
On his advancing prow.
