Stowe, H. B. (n.d.). The Twelve Months. A New Year's Dream. Retrieved from

THE mystic hour had come: the parting year Sighed its adieu, — the midnight bell had tolled Its last sad requiem. It was an hour for fancy's wildest range, And in a magic trance my steps she led Down to the caverns of the hoary deep. Fair was the place; no mortal eye before Had e'er upon its radiant glories gazed; — No foot of man e'er sullied its pure strands. Around the cave a light unearthly shone, By whose clear beam the cavern's vast extent Throughout its wide expansion stood revealed. High rose the brilliant walls of crystal clear, And many a sparkling gem to earth unknown Flashed its bright radiance there. The glittering roof, Hung with stalactites wrought in every form That nature's art could carve, flashed down its light; And the bright sanded floor, spread far and wide, Sent back the gleam on the pure sparkling gems And dazzling spars that glittered in its beam. From many a coral cleft and crystal rock The broad sea plants their emerald drapery wreathed. No sound amid the spacious vaults was heard Save the soft rippling of the murmuring wave, Or the last dying tones of Nereid's harp In some far distant bower.
