Overview -
This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ... Whipt light and white as foam. Now Alliolyle, where the sand-flower blows, Taught three old apes to sing--Taught three old apes to dance on their toes And caper around in a ring. They yelled them hoarse and they croaked them sweet, They twirled them about and around, To the noise of their voices they danced with their feet, They stamped with their feet on the ground. But down to the shore skipped Lallerie, His parrot on his thumb, And the twain they scritched in mockery, While the dancers go and come. And, alasl in the evening, rosy and still, Light-haired Lallerie Bitterly quarrelled with Alliolyle By the yellow-sanded sea. The rising moon swam sweet and large Before their furious eyes, And they rolled and rolled to the coral marge Where the surf for ever cries. Too late, too late, comes Muziomone: Clear in the clear green sea Alliolyle lies not alone, But clasped with Lallerie. He blows on his shell plaintive notes; Ape, parraquito, bee Flock where a shoe on the salt wave floats, --The shoe of Lallerie. He fetches nightcaps, one and nine, Grey apes he dowers three, His house as fair as the Malmsey wine Seems sad as cypress-tree. Three bowls he brims with sweet honeycomb To feast the bumble bees, Saying, "O bees, be this your home, For grief is on the seas!" He sate him lone in a coral grot, At the flowing in of the tide; When ebbed the billow, there was not, Save coral, aught beside. So hairy apes in three white beds, And nightcaps, one and nine, On moonlit pillows lay three heads Bemused with dwarfish wine. A tomb of coral, the dirge of bee, The grey apes' guttural groan For AI Holy le, for Lallerie, For thee, O Muziomone! SUNK LYON ESSE In sea-cold Lyonesse, When the Sabbath eve shafts down On the roofs, walls, belfries Of the...
