Riding on a horse, Oscar Wilde noted short story writer, describing the beauty of Nature on the way as in his poem reaches a place where Ravenna stands as a ruined castle, where the old King after winning all the battles rest under the care of his daughter. He is reminded of Lord Byron, the brave poet who was like second Anthony in love with the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and his battle battle to liberate country from invasion and for liberty for her people. This is a long beautiful classical poetry to read by Oscar Wilde!
