THE LAST -JOURNEY. Be journeyed east, and 'neath the palms, In languid noolls of tropic calms, He saw the dark-eyed liouris dance, And heard the Bedouin's midnight chants? With many a Persian worshipper, He breathed the fair rose-gardens' myrrh, And on old Tadmor's weed-grown site The traveller's tout was pitched at night. He wandered by the enchanted Nile, Living in centuries dead the while. Beneath the blue of Lybian skies He dreamed of Cleopatra's eyes. He climbed the desert's pyramid, And wondered what its silence hid, And strove, beside the Sphinx, to guoss The riddle of its awfulness. He trod the streets of ancient Rome, And dreamed 011 Spanish hills of homo He saw, beyond the Appouines, The midnight sun on Norway's pi.no*, And, standing by the Golden Horn, He heard the muezzin's call at morn, And felt, on Calvary's haunted hill, The presence of the Saviour still. From Orient to Occident The traveller's restless way was bent, He watched the miners delve for gold; He heard their camp-fire stories told He saw where earthquake shocks had scarred The sun-kissed slopes of San Benard, And climbed the Sierras' peaks to wait For sunset at the Golden Gate. When for a while he ceased to roam, And by the peaceful hearth of home j' He sat, and told to listening friends Strange stories of the world's far ends. And those who heard him seemed to tread With him the streets of Tadmor dead, And see o'er Egypt's sands flash forth The frozen sunlight of the north. So, for a while, ho took his rest With those who knew and loved him best; Then the old longing came to see Strange lands in other worlds, and he Took up his pilgrim staff alone, And journeyed to the Great Unknown. God speed," we say, and grant his quest Ends on the Hills of Endless Rest. r:
