CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

miss the liveliness of his conversation-he talked Memoirs. Can you read this? My lamp is not clear. W. S. L.

TO My DAUGHTER.(1)
By that dejected city, Arno runs,
Where Ugolino claspt his famisht sons.
There wert thou born, my Julia! there thine eyes
Return'd as bright a blue to vernal skies.
And thence, my little wanderer ! when the Spring
Advanced, thee, too, the Hours on silent wing
Brought, while anemonies were quivering round,
And pointed tulips pierced the purple ground,
Where stood fair Florence : there thy voice first blest
My ear, and sank like balm into my breast :
For many griefs had wounded it, and more
Thy little hands could lighten were in store.
But why revert to griefs ? Thy sculptur'd brow
Dispels from mine its darkest cloud even now.
What then the bliss to see again thy face,
And all that Rumour has announced of grace !
I urge, with fevered breast, the four-month day.
O! could I sleep to wake again in May.

1 Landor was expecting a visit from his son, Walter, and his daughter Julia, and these verses appeared in Blackwood's Magazine, March 1843. Reprinted, with slight alterations, in Works, 1846 and 1876.
