Ā;ES ALIENUM

HISPANIA! O, Hispania! once my home β€”
How hath thy fall degraded every son
Who owns thee for a birth-place. They who walk
Thy marbled courts and holy sanctuaries,
Or tread thy olive groves, and pluck the grapes
That cluster there β€” or dance the saraband
By moonlight, to some Moorish melody β€”
Or whistle with the Muleteer, along
Thy goat-climbed rocks and awful precipices;

[Hata Bildir]
