The Last of the Peshwas

Excerpt from The Last of the Peshwas: A Tale of the Third Maratha War The Exile's Dream Our ship, as swift as the lightning flash, Clove with her prow the waves that dashTumultuously with thunderous roarAt midnight on an Indian shore, And those whereunder buried lieBusiris' Memphian chivalry.Then o'er the midland wavelets blueTo Calpe's cannoned steep we flew, And in a moment southward farSt. Vincent left and Trafalgar.Ah! joy to feel the northern blastThat on our brows the snowflake cast, Till loomed a land of hodden grayHalf-hidden by the Atlantic spray, Behind whose misty canopyWas heard the peewit's eerie cry.What magic ship thus bore my soulLike flash of lightning to her goalAcross the seas that lay between?A dream of days that once had been.And what that land of hodden gray?The bonnie hills of Galloway, On which my steps no more may stray, For ever and aye.
