Poem by Felicia Dorothea Hemans


Druid Chorus on the Landing of the Romans


BY the dread and viewless powers,
Whom the storms and seas obey,
From the Dark Isles1 mystic bowers,
Romans! oer the deep away!
Think ye, t is but natures gloom
Oer our shadowy coast which broods?
By the altar and the tomb,
Shun these haunted solitudes!
Know ye Monas awful spells?
She the rolling orbs can stay!
She the mighty grave compels
Back to yield its fettered prey!
Fear ye not the lightning-stroke?
Mark ye not the fiery sky?
Hence!around our central oak
Gods are gathering,Romans, fly!
