[Title Page]

TO ELIZABETH

This book has many joys for you;

Pictures in red and brown and blue;

Clear maps which show the sunlit seas

That hid such wondrous mysteries;

But best of all! you here will read

Of great Columbus' daring deed,

And find how wise he was and bold

Who dreamt of fair, strange lands of gold

Sought the far borders of the main,

And gave new worlds to mighty Spain.
