First Line: Nobly, nobly cape saint vincent to the northwest died away
Last Line: While jove's planet rises yonder, silent over africa.
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean


NOBLY, nobly Cape Saint Vincent to the Northwest died away;
Sunset ran, one glorious blood-red, reeking into Cadiz Bay;
Bluish 'mid the burning water, fun in face Trafalgar lay;
In the dimmest Northeast distance dawned Gibraltar grand and gray;
"Here and here did England help me: how can I help England?" -- say,
Whoso turns as I, this evening, turn to God to praise and pray,
While Jove's planet rises yonder, silent over Africa.
