His fall was destined to a barren strand, A petty fortress, and a dubious hand ; He left the name, at which the world grew...
Seite 46 - The march begins, in military state, And nations on his eye suspended wait; Stern Famine guards the solitary coast, And Winter barricades the realms of Frost; He comes...
