WHERE are thy splendors, Dorian Corinth? Where
Thy crested turrets, thy ancestral goods,
The temple of the blest, the dwellings of the fair,
The high-born dames, the myriad multitudes?
There's not a trace of thee, sad doomed one, left;
By ravening war at once of all bereft.
We, the sad nereids, offspring of the surge,
Alone are spared to chant the halcyon's dirge.
