Is rolled — the curse shall cease — thy love no mora
Unequal bless thy sons : the precious tears
Thine e'ves of beauty weep, shall sanctify



\



THE BRIDE OF MESSINA. bi'S

Alike our memories. Yes ! In deatli are quenched
The fires of rage ; and Hatred o\ras subdued,
The mighty reconciler. Pity bends
An angel form above the funeral urn,
With weeping dear embrace. Then to the toinb
Stay not my passage : — Oh ! forbid me not,
Thus with atoning sacrifice to quell
The curse of Heaven.

Isabella. All Christendom is rich

In shrines of mercy, where the troubled heart
May find repose. Oh ! many a heavy buixlen
Have sinners in Loretto's mansion laid ;
And Heaven's peculiar blessing breathes around
The grave that has redeemed the world ! — The prayoi-s
Of the devout are precious — fraught with store
Of grace, they win forgiveness from the skies ; —
And on the soil by goiy murder stained
Shall rise the purifjdng fane.

Don C^sab. We pluck

The arrow from the wound — but the torn heart

Shall ne'er be healed. Let him who can, drag on

A weary life of penance and of pain,

To cleanse the spot of everlasting guilt ; —

I would not live the victim of despair ;

No ! I must meet with beaming eye the smile

Of happy ones, and breathe erect the air

Of liberty and joy. Wliile yet alike

We shared thy love, then o'er my days of youth

Pale Envy cast his withering shade ; and now,

Think'st thou my heart could brook the dearer tics

That bind thee in thy sorrow to the dead ?

Death, in his undecaying palace throned.

To the pure diamond of perfect virtue

Sublimes the mortal, and with chastemng fire

Each gathered stain of frail humanity

Purges and bums away : high as the stars

Tower o'er this earthly sphere, he soars above mc ;

And as by ancient hate dissevered long.

Brethren and equal denizens we lived.

So now my restless soul with envy pines.

That he has won from me the glorious prize

L L



514 THE BRIDE oF MESSINA.

Of immortality, and like a God

In memory marches on to times unborn !

IsAB. My sons ! Why have I called you to Messina
To find for each a grave ? I brought ye hither
To calm your strife to peace. Lo ! Fate has turned
My hopes to blank despair.

Don C^sar. Whate'er was spoke,

My mother, is fulfilled ! Blame not the end
By Heaven ordained We trode our father's halls
With hopes of peace ; and reconciled for ever,
Together we shall sleep in death.

Isabella. My son,

Live for thy mother ! In the stranger's land.
Say, wouldst thou leave me friendless and aloue,
To cruel scom a prey — ho filial arm
To shield my helpless age ?

Don C-esar. When all the world

With heartless taunts pursues thee, to our grave
For refuge fly, my mother, and invoke
Thy sons' divinity — we shall be Gods !
And we will hear thy prayers : — and as the Twins
Of Heaven, a beaming star of comfort shine
To the tost shipman — we will hover near thee
With present help, and soothe thy troubled soul I

IsAB Live — for thy mother, live, my son —
Must I lose all ?

[She throws her arms abcnJt him loith passionate
emotion. He gently a yngages himself, and,
turning his face away, extends to her his hand

Don C^sar. Farewell !

Isabella. I can no more !

Too well my tortured bosom owns how weak
A mother's prayers : a mightier voice shall sound
Resistless on thy heart.

[She goes towards the entrance of the scene
My daughter, come!
A brother calls him to the realms of night ;
Perchance with golden hues of earthly joy
The sister, the beloved, may gently lure
The wanderer to life again,

[Beatrice appears at the entrance of the scene.



THE BRIDE OF MESSINA. 515

Donna Isabella, Don C^sab. and the Chorus.

DoK G^SAE [on seeing her, covers his face with Jiis hands)

My mother !
What hast thou done ?

Isabella [leading Beateice /oru'arrfs).

A mother's prayers are valu 1
Kneel at his feet — conjure him — melt his heart!
Oh ! bid him live !

Don C^sae. Deceitful mother, thus

Thou triest thy son ! And ■wouldst thou stir my eovu

Again to passion's strife, and make the sun

Beloved once more, now when I tread the paths

Of everlasting night ? See where he stands —

Angel of life ! — and wondrous beautiful,

Shakes from his plenteous horn the fragrant store

Of golden fruits and flowers, that breathe around

Divinest airs of joy ; — my heart awakes

In the warm sunbeam — hope returns, and life

Thrills in mv breast anew.

Isabella {to Beateice). Thou wilt prevail!

Or none ! Implore him that he live, nor rob
The stafi" and comfort of our days.

Beateice. The loved one

A sacrifice demands. Oh, let me die
To soothe a brother's shade ! Yes, I will be
The victim ! Ere I saw the light forewarned
To death, I live a wrong to Heaven ! The curso
Pursues me still : — 'twas I that slew thy son —
I waked the slumbering furies of their strife —
Be mine the atoning blood !

Cajetan. Ill-fated mother !

Impatient all thy children haste to doom,
And leave thee on the desolate waste alone
Of joyless life.

Beateice. Oh, spare thy precious days

For Nature's band. Thy mother needs a sou ;
My brother, live for her! Light were the pang
To lose a daughter — but a moment shown.
Then snatched away !

Don C^sae [with deep epilation). 'Tis one to live or die,
Blest with a sister's love!

L r. a

THE BRIDE OF MESSINA



Beatrice. Say — dost thou eii\-^'

Thy brother's ashes?
Don CiESAE. In thy grief he lives

A hallowed life ! — my doom is death for ever !
Beat. . My bnther !

Don C^sae. Sister ! are thy tears for me ?

Beat. . Live for our mother!
Don C^sar {dropping her hand, and stepping back).

For our mother ?
Beatrice {hiding her head in his breast). Live

For her and for thy sister !
Chorus (Bohemund). She has won !

Resistless are her prayers. Despairing mother,
Awake to hope again — his choice is made !
Thy son shall live !

[At this moment an anthem is heard. The fold
ing doors are thrown open, and in the Churcli
is seen the Catafalque erected, and the coffin
surrounded ivith candlesticks.
Don CiESAE {turning to the coffin). I will not rob thee, brother !
The sacrifice is thine: — Hark! from the tomb.
Mightier than mother's tears, or sister's love,
Thy voice resistless cries: — my arms enfold
A treasure, potent with celestial joys,
To deck this earthly sphere, and make a lot
Worthy the Gods ! but shall I live in bliss,
While in the tomb thy sainted innocence
Sleeps unavenged? Thou, Piuler of our days,
All just — all wise — let not the world l.ehold
Thy partial care! I saw her tears! — enough —
They flowed for me! I am content: my brother !
I come!

[He stabs himself with a dagger, and falls dead
at his sister's feet. She throws herself into her
mothers arms.
Chorus, Cajetan {after a deep silence).

In dread amaze I stand, nor know
If I should mourn his fate. One truth revealed
Speaks in my breast; — no good supreme is life ;
But of all earthly ills the chief is — Guilt !

THE END.
