Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ...fragrant wind, that through them flies, Is breathed from wastes by plough unbroke. Here, with my rifle and my steed, s And her who left the world for me, I plant me, where the red deer feed In the green desert--and am free.

Who feeds its founts with rain and dew? v Who moves, I ask, its gliding mass, And trains the bordering vines, whose blue, Bright clusters tempt me as I pass? Broad are these streams--my steed obeys, Plunges, ...
