Edgar Allan Poe. To Zante

Fair isle, that from the fairest of all flowers,
      Thy gentlest of all gentle names dost take!
How many memories of what radiant hours
      At sight of thee and thine at once awake!
How many scenes of what departed bliss!
      How many thoughts of what entombéd hopes!
How many visions of a maiden that is
      No more - no more upon thy verdant slopes!
No more! alas, that magical sad sound
      Transforming all! Thy charms shall please no more -
Thy memory no more! Accurséd ground
      Henceforth I hold thy flower-enamelled shore,
O hyacinthine isle! O purple Zante!
      "Isola d'oro! Fior di Levante!"
