Again the murderous deed he acted o'er:
The pale stern seer again cried out, ``beware!''
Again with boundless rage his bosom heaved;
He rushed again to dash him headlong down;
But griped, instead, some hideous, nameless thing,
That with him struggled; crushed him to the earth;
And held him there; ...

Whole nations might have wander'd;--where the eye
Might vainly stretch to compass at a view
