Excerpt from Kyrdoon a Romantic Tale, in Various Rhymed Metres Kyrdoon To Cyril Hume. When all of Carthage brandished swords beneath the Afrit star, When the purple town of Dido put its armor on for war, When the swarthy sons of Sidon and the sea-brown sons of TyreUnhung their broad shields from the wall, and trued their swords withfire, Then were there gorgeous gatherings north of Libyan sands, The carrion dogs came trooping in to Carthage in great bands, The leanish men that any fought for gold to chink in purse, The renegades turned soldier in lieu of something worse! From Graecia's seven towns they came, from hell-born Kurdistan, From every land that had the stuff to breed a fighting man, From Cyprus' den of pirates, from the ruin where was Troy, - O to be in Carthage on that day would fill a man with joy! To be in Carthage on that day would fill a man with flame, To see the outland beauty that into Carthage came, To see the brave men gathering under the reddish star, When Carthage took her purple off, and stripped herself for war! So, many were the names that day would fill a king with fear, Many the pirates that had won fear's tribute far and near, Many had wrested ransom to outshine the gaudy morn, From the western Gates of Hercules east to the Golden Horn!
