A ROMANCE OF ANCIENT EGYPT
FROM THE HISTORICAL ROMANCES OF GEORG EBERS
By Georg Ebers
Translated from the German by Clara Bell
Thou knowest well from what this book arose.
When suffering seized and held me in its clasp
Thy fostering hand released me from its grasp,
And from amid the thorns there bloomed a rose.
Air, dew, and sunshine were bestowed by Thee,
And Thine it is; without these lines from me.
