    "So we were left galloping, Joris and I,
    Past Looz and past Tongres, no cloud in the sky;
    The broad sun above laughed a pitiless laugh,
    'Neath our feet broke the brittle bright stubble like chaff;
    Till over by Dalhen a dome-spire sprang white,
    And 'Gallop,' gasped Joris, 'for Aix is in sight!'"
