Revelry
 
There was a sound of revelry by night,
And Belgium’s capital had gather’d then
Her Beauty and her Chivalry, and bright
The lamps shone o’er fair women and brave men:
A thousand hearts beat happily; and when
Music arose with its voluptuous swell,
Soft eyes look’d love to eyes which spake again,
And all went merry as a marriage bell.
        Byron.—Childe Harold, Canto III. Stanza 21.
  1
A bevy of fair women, richly gay
In gems and wanton dress.
        Milton.—Paradise Lost, Book XI.
