C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Lines
By George Edward Woodberry (1855–1930)
 
NOW snowy Apennines shining
  Should breathe my spirit bare;
My heart should cease repining
  In the rainbow-haunted air:
But cureless sorrow carries        5
  My heart beyond the sea,
Nor comfort in it tarries
  Save thoughts of thee.
 
The branch of olive shaken
  Silvers the azure sea;        10
Winds in the ilex waken:
  Oh, wert thou here with me,
Gray olive, dark ilex, bright ocean,
  The radiant mountains round,
Never for love’s devotion        15
  Were sweeter lodging found!
