Luís de Camoes

Named from her woods, with fragrant bowers adorned,    
From fair Madeira’s purple coast we turned:    
Cyprus and Paphos’ vales the smiling loves    
Might leave with joy for fair Madeira’s groves;    
A shore so flowery, and so sweet an air,            
Venus might build her dearest temple there.
