The Lotus-Eaters

________________

“Branches they bore of that enchanted stem,
Laden with flower and fruit, whereof they gave
To each, but whoso did receive of them
And taste, to him the gushing of the wave
Far far away did seem to mourn and rave
On alien shores..”

From The Lotos-Eaters, Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1832.
