Lo! Cintra's glorious Eden intervenes 
In variegated maze of mount and glen. 
Ah me! what hand can pencil guide, or pen, 
To follow half on which the eye dilates 
Through views more dazzling unto mortal ken 
Than those whereof such things the bard relates, 
Who to the awe-struck world unlocked Elysium's gates?
Lord Byron
