          Mocks thy gently falling feet,
                Child of Ocean!

ASIA

      And distant.

PANTHEA
                    List! the strain floats nearer now.

ECHOES
            In the world unknown
              Sleeps a voice unspoken;
            By thy step alone
              Can its rest be broken;
                Child of Ocean!

ASIA
      How the notes sink upon the ebbing wind!

ECHOES
            Oh, follow, follow!
            Through the caverns hollow,
          As the song floats thou pursue,
          By the woodland noontide dew;
          By the forests, lakes, and fountains,
          Through the many-folded mountains;
