"Giaour" is an offensive Turkish word for infidel or non-believer, and is similar to the Arabic word "kafir." — MOORE. 'To love the softest hearts are prone,But such can ne'er be all his own;Too timid in his woes to share,Too meek to meet, or brave despair;And sterner hearts alone may feelThe wound that time can never heal.The rugged metal of the mine,Must burn before its surface shine,But plunged within the furnace-flame,It bends and melts - though still the same;Then tempered to thy want, or will,'Twill serve thee to defend or kill;A breast-plate for thine hour of need,Or blade to bid thy foeman bleed;But if a dagger's form it bear,Let those who shape its edge, beware!Thus passion's fire, and woman's art,Can turn and tame the sterner heart;From these its form and tone are ta'en,And what they make it, must remain,But break - before it bend again.If solitude succeed to grief,Release from pain is slight relief;The vacant bosom's wildernessMight thank the pang that made it less.We loathe what none are left to share:Even bliss - 'twere woe alone to bear;The heart once left thus desolateMust fly at last for ease - to hate.It is as if the dead could feelThe icy worm around them steal,And shudder, as the reptiles creepTo revel o'er their rotting sleep,Without the power to scare awayThe cold consumers of their clay IIt is as if the desert-bird, Whose beak unlocks her bosom's stream To still her famished nestlings' scream,Nor mourns a life to them transferred,Should rend her rash devoted breast,And find them flown her empty nest.The keenest pangs the wretched find Are rapture to the dreary void,The leafless desert of the mind, The waste of feelings unemployed.Who would be doomed to gaze uponA sky without a cloud or sun?Less hideous far the tempest's roarThan ne'er to brave the billows more -Thrown, when the war of winds is o'er,A lonely wreck on fortune's shore,'Mid sullen calm, and silent bay,Unseen to drop by dull decay; -Better to sink beneath the shockThan moulder piecemeal on the rock!'Father!

'And she was lost - and yet I breathed, But not the breath of human life:A serpent round my heart was wreathed, And stung my every thought to strife.Alike all time, abhorred all place,Shuddering I shrunk from Nature's face,Where every hue that charmed beforeThe blackness of my bosom wore.The rest thou dost already know,And all my sins, and half my woe.But talk no more of penitence;Thou see'st I soon shall part from hence:And if thy holy tale were true,The deed that's done canst thou undo?Think me not thankless - but this griefLooks not to priesthood for relief.My soul's estate in secret guess:But wouldst thou pity more, say less.When thou canst bid my Leila live,Then will I sue thee to forgive;Then plead my cause in that high placeWhere purchased masses proffer grace.Go, when the hunter's hand hath wrungFrom forest-cave her shrieking young,And calm the lonely lioness:But soothe not - mock not my distress! He stood - some dread was on his face,Soon hatred settled in its place:It rose not with the reddening flushOf transient anger's hasty blush,But pale as marble o'er the tomb,Whose ghastly whiteness aids its gloom.His brow was bent, his eye was glazed;He raised his arm, and fiercely raised,And sternly shook his hand on high,As doubting to return or fly;Impatient of his flight delayed,Here loud his raven charger neighed -Down glanced that hand and, and grasped his blade;That sound had burst his waking dream,As slumber starts at owlet's scream.The spur hath lanced his courser's sides;Away, away, for life he rides:Swift as the hurled on high jerreedSprings to the touch his startled steed;The rock is doubled, and the shoreShakes with the clattering tramp no more;The crag is won, no more is seenHis Christian crest and haughty mien.
