And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills-
And here were forests ancient as the hills-
But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted-
A savage place! as holy and enchanted By woman wailing for her demon-lover!

A mighty fountain momently was forced-
Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail-
And 'mid these dancing rocks at once and ever-
Five miles meandering with a mazy motion-
Then reached the caverns measureless to man-

To such a deep delight 'twould win me -
I would build that dome in air-
And all who heard should see them there His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice -
For he on honeydew hath fed -
