)BOAT upon a moonlit sea
-- Was floating without sail or
oar
A stately -man within it sat,
_-_ --_-_- Gazing upon the lessening shore.
A cherub child was on his knee,
--- Clasped closely by his circling
-' -- .. arm
Who, by her little tender words,
E'en then his troubled soul
-: -could charm.
-- The Duke of Milan thus is cast
Upon the foaming waters wild
(By his own wicked brother's
deed),
S-- To perish with his only child.
But God. sent aid with dawning
light,
SA-- lovely island he described,
S- To whose fair shores, with ver-
. ---- dure clad,
-- The boat was drifted by the
S---_ tide.

* -r (








He took his infant in his arms,
And sprang upon the yellow sand,
And there upon the shore he saw,
A gibb'ring monster, staring stand.

The only human creature there, 1 i7.1
Who scarcely owned the name of man, \\'-
A speechless monster-but in time
The duke's strong
servant -Caliban. --

The banished Prince
a home soon made -,. .
Within a rosy coral. "j
cave :
And Caliban (as we ,
have said)' "
Was his uncouth but 'i
useful slave.

And other servants,
too, he had;
A hundred sprites his
will obeyed: PA*
Fairies that dwelt in forest bow'rs,
Or spirits who on sunbeams played.








For he was skilled in magic arts,
And could "call spirits from the deep,"
And bid l them ho-vr round his child,
-Or watch beside her mid-day sleep.

S. And thus within th' enchanted isle,
The sweet Miranda throve and grew,
Her father, and the sprites he ruled,
The only beings that she knew.
.- No birds nor animals were there;
SY. et oft beneath the cloudless skies
Sweet music floated on the air,
And sang her gentle lullabies.







The years rolled on; a stately maid
The young Miranda now had grown,
And Prospero, for her sweet sake,
Would fain once more possess a throne.
And Time and Chance now
stood his friends;
A stately ship was off the
shore;
And well he knew his ancient
foes
Across the seas that vessel
bore.
Now one dear spirit, he em-
ployed,
Ariel the airy creature's
name,-
Who always loved to do his will,
And at his slightest summons
came;
NV, '- But yet his freedom often
craved,-
F For spirits ever would be
free,-
The only gift the duke could give
His Ariel, was liberty.
And now the mighty master
called,
"My Ariel, I need thy aid,
And if thou dost thy duty well,
With freedom thou shalt be
repaid.

And soon a mighty tempest

And while the winds and

About the ship like fire he,
blazed.

K '^ -- There he awoke to magic strains,

dead,
.. And following the guiding sound,
To Prospero's own cell was led.
The fair Miranda there he saw-

honest, true, and good,
So made him powerless by a spell,
And set him to bear logs of wood,.
Miranda, sorry for his fate,
Would of his labour bear a part,
And by her generous kindness won ,
The captive prince's honest heart. .







Prospero watched them both
unseen,
And learned to trust his princely
slave;
Released him from his irksome toil,
And for his wife, Miranda gave.
Thus in the royal exile's cell,
The tale of love is told once

And Ferdinand has won his queen,

S' Meantime the king and the bad

For his fair son's untimely end.

Now Caliban was sent for wood ;

But it was Trinculo he saw
(And not a spirit as he thought)
The merry jester of the king,
Whom chance to this lone spot
had brought.
Soon after, the ship's butler came,
Amazed such company to find;
The monster lying at their feet
Was surely not of human kind ?
So the two shipmates wondering

And when the butler gave consent,
Up from the earth the monster sprang,
And, reckless of Duke Prosper's power,
This song of wild defiance sang:

The monster next his plans revealed:-
"While Prospero, his master, slept,

And while they quarrelled ',

Yet dead they deemed him, for alas!
They found him not in grove or glade.
And now, with ceaseless wand'ring tired,
Upon the turf the king is laid.
Suddenly, on the tranquil air,
Soft solemn strains of music rise,
And figures, strange, fantastic, wild,
Appear before their startled eyes.

They bring a stately banquet in,
And then, with gestures quaint but
meet,
Beckon the weary shipwrecked men
To rise, and at the table eat.
But as the king approached the board,
Thunder and lightning rent the sky,
And a great harpy--dreadful bird -
Was seen upon the food to fly.


^.









The. banquet vanished: Ariel's voice
Their secret sins then loud
proclaim cd. [struck,
In burning \words, till conscience
They bowed, repentant and
ashamed.


Then Prospero, with pity' moved,
Declared himself, and pardon
gave :
And showed to the unhappy king,
His rescued heir within n his cave.
There with Miranda, chess he played.
The king with tears embraced his,
son;
And thus, the duchy he had lost,
By Prospero was fairly won.








His lovely child would wear a crown,
Of Naples she would be the
Queen ;
And never more upon that isle
Would Ariel or his lord be seen.
For Prospero will burn his books,
And set his much-loved spirit free,
Within the cowslip buds to lie,
Or roam the air at liberty.


Yet first, at Prospero's request,
The ship and crew all safe he
brings;
And then, rejoicing, takes his flight,
And ever as he soars he sings.
