Collegia – Ode 19: The Return


(Apologies to Crabbe)

Thus once again, my native isle, I come
Thee to salute, my earliest, only home;
Much art thou altered, but in thee I see
A greater change than thou mayst find in me;
For I have lived these months in fax exile,
And thou hast waited patiently the while.
