Mark Anthony Greets Cleopatra

This poem is based on the story of Mark Anthony and Cleopatra. He was so taken by her beauty when he first saw her, he couldn't help but fall in love.



What showers are these
that bless my fainting soul
                       today?
What powers are these
that lead my eyes,
             O so astray?
That pour down
on the mountain cold
  that bring the silver
           and the gold  
Envy I the water in thy bath!
Envy I the stars in thy path!
   that runs to and fro
           all night long
before turns the dial,
O my Queen...
                 of the Nile
