I have never seen Volcanoes mdashB
But when Travellers tellC
How those old mdash phlegmatic mountainsD
Usually so still mdashB
-
Bear within mdash appalling OrdnanceE
Fire and smoke and gunF
Taking Villages for breakfastG
And appalling Men mdashB
-
If the stillness is VolcanicH
In the human faceI
When upon a pain TitanicH
Features keep their place mdashB
-
If at length the smouldering anguishB
Will not overcome mdashB
And the palpitating VineyardJ
In the dust be thrownK
-
If some loving AntiquaryL
On Resumption MornM
Will not cry with joy PompeiiN
To the Hills returnO
