The Pearl of the Antilles

Excerpt from The Pearl of the Antilles: A View of the Past and a Glance at the Future On departing from Cuba (1836) Pearl of the Ocean! Brightest star of all!Enchanting Cuba! Stealthily, in gloom, Night shrouds thy peerless blue with darkest pall, As grief, e'en, doth my pensive soul entomb.About to start! The busy crew, aloft, To tear me from mine own, my native land, Now hoist the sails, and soon the zephyr soft, Wafting them on, blows from thy tropic strand.Farewell, my country bright! Thou Eden dear, Where'er I'm wrecked by tempest wild or gale, Thy gentle name shall soothe my straining ear.Alas! alas! How fills the swelling sail!The anchor's heaved! The rocking ship asideDoth cleave the waves, and on in silence glide. (Rendered from the Spanish sonnet of Gertrudis Gomez de Avellaneda, Cuba's greatest poetess and dramatist.)
