Evangeline

PART THE SECOND
II (continued)

lineSingle notes were then heard, in sorrowful, low lamentation;
880Till, having gathered them all, he flung them abroad in derision,
As when, after a storm, a gust of wind through the tree-tops
Shakes down the rattling rain in a crystal shower on the branches.
With such a prelude as this, and hearts that throbbed with emotion,
Slowly they entered the Têche, where it flows through the green Opelousas,
885And, through the amber air, above the crest of the woodland,
Saw the column of smoke that arose from a neighboring dwelling; –
Sounds of a horn they heard, and the distant lowing of cattle.
