Fair land! of chivalry the old domain,
Land of the vine and olive, lovely Spain!
Though not for thee with classic shores to vie
In charms that fix th’ enthusiast’s pensive eye;
Yet hast thou scenes of beauty richly fraught
With all that wakes the glow of lofty thought.
Felicia D. Hemans—Abencerrage. Canto II. L. 1.
