Notes
  • Text of the programme is as follows: Not ours the stream of fair Peneus flowing, /​ Not ours the glittering sheen of Baiae's bay; /​ Not ours the darkling groves of Tempe, growing /​ Where Pelion's shadow cools the burning day. /​ Lady, we cannot point to stream or mountain /​ as witness of our claim to storied praise; /​ No Oread haunts the glen, no Nymph the fountain, /​ No goddess gleams in our untrodden ways. /​ Yet think not with the vanished gods have vanished /​ Quite all the candour and the grace of earth; /​ Beauty and Truth have not been wholly banished, /​ But smile as brightly now as at thy birth. /​ Ah Yes! withdrawn from suffering and from sorrow, /​ Immortally they smile on mortal's pain; /​ Dark is to-day but in a brighter morrow /​ They'll kiss the eyelids of their child again. /​ Farwell! dear Lady, let a people's blessing /​ Speed thee wherever Fate allots thy part; /​ Still ever standing staunch to those who need thee, /​ Still ever bearing a courageous heart! /​ May each bright morn of Austral Day remind thee; /​ And when in days to be, the gentle hand /​ Of the great Friend shall beckon, may he find thee /​ Calm as the Night in thine own lovely land.
