A SONG OF THE ENGLISH

THE SONG OF THE CITIES—Continued

HALIFAX
Into the mist my guardian prows put forth.


QUEBEC AND MONTREAL
Peace is our portion. Yet a whisper rose.


VICTORIA
From East to West the circling word has passed.


CAPETOWN
Hail! Snatched and bartered oft from hand to hand.


MELBOURNE
Greeting! Nor fear nor favour won us place.


SYDNEY
Greeting! My birth-stain have I turned to good.


BRISBANE
The northern stirp beneath the southern skies.
