   Their ways seem harsh and wild;
They follow the beck of a baleful star,

And little recked of the country strange
   Beyond the gates of hope.

And haply a bell with a luring call
   Summoned their feet to tread
Midst the cruel rocks, where the deep pitfall
   And the lurking snare are spread. ...
