Was as a fairy city of the heart, Rising like water-columns from the sea, Of joy the sojourn, and of wealth the mart.

Thou Italy ! whose ever golden fields,
Plough'd by the sunbeams solely, would suffice
For the world's granary :
Birthplace of heroes, sanctuary of saints,
Where earthly first, then heavenly glory made
Her home.
