Seite 97 - And they sought her in vain, when a week passed away! In the highest — the lowest — the loneliest spot, Young Lovell sought wildly — but found her not. And years flew by, and their grief at last Was told as a sorrowful tale long past; And when Lovell appeared, the children cried, "See! the old man weeps for his fairy bride.
Seite 96 - THE mistletoe hung in the castle hall, The holly branch shone on the old oak wall ; And the baron's retainers were blithe and gay, And keeping their Christmas holiday. The baron beheld with a father's pride His beautiful child, young Lovell's bride; While she with her bright eyes seemed to be The star of the goodly company. "I'm weary of dancing now," she cried; "Here tarry a moment,— I'll hide, I'll hide!
Seite 54 - OH ! no ! we never mention her, Her name is never heard ; My lips are now forbid to speak That once familiar word...
Seite 97 - At length an oak chest, that had long lain hid, Was found in the castle - they raised the lid And a skeleton form lay mouldering there, In the bridal wreath of that lady fair! Oh! sad was her fate! - in sportive jest She hid from her lord in the old oak chest. It closed with a spring! - and, dreadful doom, The bride lay clasp'd in her living tomb!
Seite 96 - They sought her that night, and they sought her next day, And they sought her in vain when a week passed away ; In the highest, the lowest, the loneliest spot, Young Lovell sought wildly — but found her not. And years flew by, and their grief at last Was told as a sorrowful tale long past; And when Lovell appeared, the children cried, "See! the old man weeps for his fairy bride.
Seite 54 - OH ! no, we never mention her, her name is never heard, My lips are now forbid to speak, that once familiar word ; From sport to sport they hurry me, to banish my regret, And when they win a smile from me, they think that I forget.
Seite 103 - She sighed when he caress'd her, For she knew that they must part ; She spoke not when he press'd her To his young and panting heart : — The banners waved around her, And she heard the bugle's sound — They pass'd — and strangers found her Cold and lifeless on the ground.
Seite 54 - ... forbid to speak That once familiar word : From sport to sport they hurry me To banish my regret; And when they win a smile from me, They think that I forget. They bid me seek in change of scene The charms that others see; But were I in a foreign land, They'd find no change in me : 'Tis true that'I behold no more The valley where we met; I do not see the hawthorn tree — But how can I forget...
Seite 96 - Away she ran, — -and her friends began Each tower to search, and each nook to scan; And young Lovell cried, "O, where dost thou hide? I'm lonesome without thee, my own dear bride.
Seite 105 - SHADES of evening close not o'er us, Leave our lonely bark awhile ! Morn alas ! will not restore us Yonder dim and distant Isle.
