Pagina 334 - And but the booming shots replied, • And fast the flames roll'd on. Upon his brow he felt their breath, And in his waving hair, And look'd from that lone post of death In still, yet brave despair; And shouted but once more aloud, ' My father ! must I stay ?' While o'er him fast through sail and shroud, The wreathing fires made way.
