Excerpt from Petra: A Prize Poem, Recited in the Theatre, Oxford, June 4, 1845Sacred associations allow us to regard the land of Edom almost as the birth-place of song - In the desolation with which it has been visited, Petra has shared largely. - Enviable feelings of the Traveller who discovered its forgotten site. - The magnificent scenery around Petra, - recalling the miracle of the Exode. - vvonderful approach to the city - Meditation on its beautiful_ruins. The grandeur - gaiety (suggested by the remains of a theatre) - and ﬂourishing condition of Petra in the time of the Romans, -from which, in common with the rest of the cities of Edom, it fell by some awful but unrecorded visitation.-the early and later state of the surrounding country contrasted. - I ts present barrenness exhibits the fulfilment of the prophecies concerning it; denounced chief] y in consequence of the hostility of the Edomites against the children of Israel.
