by Alfred Tennyson, Lord (1809 - 1892)

Following her wild carol
Language: English 
Following her wild carol
She led them down the pleasant places,
For they were kingly in apparel,
Loftily stepping with fair faces.
But never more upon the shore
Dancing at the break of day,
In the deep wood no more, -- 
By the deep sea no more, -- 
No more in Xaraguay
Wander'd happy Anacaona,
The beauty of Espagnola,
The golden flower of Hayti!
