No sooner was the flowery crown 
Plac’d on her head than sleep came down, 
Gently as nights of summer fall, 
Upon the lids of NOURMAHAL.

Philip Francis Stephanoff, from Lalla Rookh, an oriental romance, by  Thomas Moore, London, 1853.

And watch, and look along the deep. 
For him whose smiles first made her weep.

Fiercely he broke away, nor stopp’d, 
Nor look’d — but from the lattice dropp’d 
Down ‘mid the pointed crags beneath, 
As if he fled from love to death.

But, hark ! — she stops — she listens — dreadful tone ! 
‘Tis her Tormentor’s laugh — and now a groan.

Scarce had she said 
These breathless words when a voice deep and dread 
As that of MONKER waking up the dead 
From their first sleep— so startling ‘twas to both— 
Rang thro’ the casement near, “Thy oath! thy oath!”
