THE

NINETEENTH

CENTURY.

No. XXIII.—JANUARY 1879.

S.S. 'LUSITANIA:

I READ in Dante how that horned light,
Which hid Ulysses, waved itself and said :
Following the sun, we set our vessel's head
To the great main ; pass'd Seville on the right

* And Ceuta on the left; then southward sped.
At last in air, far off, dim rose a Height.
We cheerd; but from it rush'd a blast of might,
And struck-and o'er us the sea-waters spread.'

I dropp'd the book, and of my child I thought
In his long black ship speeding night and day
O'er those same seas; dark Teneriffe rose, fraught
With omen ; 'Oh! were that Mount pass’d,' I say.
Then the door opens and this card is brought :
• Reach'd Cape Verde Islands, “Lusitania.'

MATTHEW ARNOLD.
