The Cap and Bells, or, The Jealousies, Page 28
by John Keats (November-December, 1819).

    "Onward we floated o'er the panting streets,
    That seem'd throughout with upheld faces paved;
    Look where we will, our bird's-eye vision meets
    Legions of holiday; bright standards waved,
    And fluttering ensigns emulously craved
    Our minute's glance; a busy thunderous roar,
    From square to square, among the buildings raved,
    As when the sea, at flow, gluts up once more
The craggy hollowness of a wild reefed shore.

    "And 'Bellanaine for ever!' shouted they,
    While that fair Princess, from her winged chair,
    Bow'd low with high demeanour, and, to pay
    Their new-blown loyalty with guerdon fair,
    Still emptied at meet distance, here and there,
    A plenty horn of jewels. And here I
    (Who wish to give the devil her due) declare
    Against that ugly piece of calumny
Which calls them Highland pebble-stones not worth a fly.

    "Still 'Bellanaine!' they shouted, while we glide
    'Slant to a light Ionic portico,
    The city's delicacy, and the pride
    Of our Imperial Basilic; a row
    Of lords and ladies, on each hand, make show
    Submissive of knee-bent obeisance,
    All down the steps; and, as we enter'd, lo!
    The strangest sight—the most unlook'd-for chance—
All things turn'd topsy-turvy in a devil's dance.
