THE HEIRESS.

VOL. I.

Ma quando io avrò durata l'éroica fatica di trascrivere questa storia da questo dilavato e graffiato autografo, e l'avrò data, come suol dirsi, alla luce, si troverà egli poi chi duri fatica di leggerla ?-MANZONI.

My task is done, my song hath ceased, my theme
Has died into an echo; it is fit

The spell should break of this protracted dream.
The torch shall be extinguish'd which hath lit
The midnight lamp; and what is writ is writ—
Would it were worthier! But I am not now
That which I have been; and my visions flit
Less palpably before me; and the glow
Which in my spirit dwelt, is fluttering, faint and low.

BYRON.

Meet in her aspect and her eyes."-Byron.
