James Thomson (1834–1882)
 
(From Liberty)

AS when, impetuous from the snow-heaped Alps,
To venial suns relenting pours the Rhine;
While, undivided, oft, with wasteful sweep,
He foams along; but through Batavian meads,
Branched into fair canals, indulgent flows;        5
Waters a thousand fields; and culture, trade,
Towns, meadows, gliding ships, and villas mixed,
A rich, a wondrous landscape rises round.
