    My beautiful, my own
    My only Venice—this is breath! Thy breeze
    Thine Adrian sea-breeze, how it fans my face!
    Thy very winds feel native to my veins,
    And cool them into calmness!

    Must mourn the deepest o’er the fatal truth,
    The Tree of Knowledge is not that of Life.

    And had it been the dove from Noah’s ark,
    Returning there from her successful search,
    Which in their way that moment chanced to fall,
    They would have eat her, olive-branch and all.
