A TRIBUTE FROM ITALY.
ALBERT, thou standest where the storm-cloud lowers
Unvanquished in thy glorious defeat.
Oh! to strip Italy of all her flowers
And bring them to thy feet!
No deeper sorrow shall Italia know,
Whose sons for freedom's sake have fought and died,
Than this--that in thine hour of darkest woe
She was not by thy side.
