Don Juan


And then he danced; - all foreigners excel

The serious Angels in the eloquence

Of pantomime !     He danced, I say, right well,

With emphasis, and also with good sense -

A thing in footing indispensable ;

He danced without theatrical pretence,

Not like a ballet-master in the van

Of his drilled nymphs, but like a gentleman.


Chaste were his steps, each kept within due bound,

And elegance was sprinkled o'er his figure ;

Like swift Camilla, he scarce skimm'd the ground,

And rather held in than put forth his vigour,

And then he had an ear for Music's sound,

Which might defy a crochet critic's rigour.
