ROOLEIRA 25.1.1807)

Eurantured have I loved to roam, A lingering votary, the vaulted dumne', Where the tall shafts, that mount in massy pride Their mingling branches shoot from side io side; Where elfin Sculptors, with fantastic clew, O'er the long roof their wild embroidery drew; Where Superstition, with capricious hand, In many a maze the wreathed window plann'd, With hues romantic tinged the gorgeous pane To fill with holy light the wondrous fane!
