sw*itch ~ Proud Principality of Catalonia!


Barcelona

by George Croly (1780 - 1860)


Proud Barcelona, on the sunny shore

That lines with silver Spain's resplendent sea,

What can for sport or splendor vie with thee?


But now, thy day of war and terror o'er,

Like sudden madness burst thy grateful glee.

Thy morning streets were filled with pageantry;

At eve thy Rambla rang with dance and song;

Night, midnight, found the still unwearied throng

Wandering by seashore or illumined shade,

Busy with masque and feast and serenade.

it's surely hard to allow

as bull-headed as we are

but, in fighting, an affectation on the art?
