L'ENVOI: THE RETURN OF THE SIRE DE NESLE, A.D. 16 -, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: My towers at last! These rovings end
Last Line: But blest to fold but thee.
Subject(s): Sharks


My towers at last! These rovings end,
Their thirst is slaked in larger dearth:
The yearning infinite recoils,
For terrible is earth!

Kaf thrusts his snouted crags through fog:
Araxes swells beyond his span,
And knowledge poured by pilgrimage
Overflows the banks of man.

But thou, my stay, thy lasting love
One lonely good, let this but be!
Weary to view the wide world's swarm,
But blest to fold but thee.
