The Danube in Wrath (Poem by Victor Hugo)

the Old Poems

The Danube in Wrath
By Victor Hugo


The River Deity upbraids his Daughters, the contributary Streams: —

Ye daughters mine! will naught abate
Your fierce interminable hate?
Still am I doomed to rue the fate
That such unfriendly neighbors made?
The while ye might, in peaceful cheer,
Mirror upon your waters clear,
Semlin! thy Gothic steeples dear,
And thy bright minarets, Belgrade!
