    Seul le nom de Rome entre ces murs reste à la maison. ...
  • Rom

    That old age weareth for a cloak. ...

Charles Kingsley Poem
The Mango-Tree
 by Charles Kingsley

He wiled me through the furzy croft;
He wiled me down the sandy lane.
He told his boy's love, soft and oft,
Until I told him mine again.

We married, and we sailed the main;
A soldier, and a soldier's wife.
We marched through many a burning plain;
