Adieu to Coimbra
By Luís de Camões (c. 1524–1580)
 
SWEET lucent waters of Mondego-stream,
  Of my Remembrance restful jouïssance,
  Where far-fet, lingering, traitorous Esperance
Long whiles misled me in a blinding Dream:
Fro’ you I part, yea, still I’ll ne’er misdeem        5
  That long-drawn Memories which your charms enhance
  Forbid me changing and, in every chance,
E’en as I farther speed I nearer seem.
Well may my Fortunes hale this instrument
  Of Soul o’er new strange regions wide and side,        10
Offered to winds and watery element:
  But hence my Spirit, by you ’companied,
Borne on the nimble wings that Reverie lent,
  Flies home and bathes her, Waters! in your tide.
