Friendship trades. But who would not sail through mutiny and storm, even over Atlantic waves, to reach the fabulous retreating shores of some continent man? The imagination still clings to the faintest tradition of THE ATLANTIDES The smothered streams of love, which flow More bright than Phlegethon, more low, Island us ever, like the sea. In an Atlantic mystery. Our fabled shores none ever reach, No mariner has found our beach. Only our mirage now is seen, And neighboring waves with floating green, Yet still the oldest charts contain Some dotted outline of our main; In ancient times midsummer days Unto the western islands gaze, To Tenerifie and the A zores, Have shown our faint and cloud-like shores. But sink not yet, ye desolate isles, A non your coast with commerce smiles, And richer freights ye 11 furnish far Than Africa or Malabar.
