    O Calpe! dir donnerts am Fusse,
    Doch blickt dein tausendjähriger
    Gipfel Ruhig auf Welten umher.
    Siehe dort wölkt es sich auf
    Ueber die westlichen Wogen her,
    Wölket sich breiter und ahnender auf,—
    Es flattert, O Calpe! Segelgewolk!
    Flügel der Hülfe! Wie prachtig
    Wallet die Fahne Brittaniens
    Deiner getreuen Verheisserin!
    Calpe! Sie walltl Aber die Nacht sinkt,
    Sie deckt mit ihren schwàrzesten,
    Unholdesten Rabenfittigen Gebirge,
    Flàchen, Meer und Bucht Und Klippen, wo der bleiche
    Tod Des Schiffers, Kiele spaltend, sitzt.
    Hinan!
