Saint George's banner, broad and gay,

Now faded, as the fading ray

Less bright, and less, was flung;

The evening gale had scarce the power

To wave it on the donjon tower,

So heavily it hung.

The scouts had pa

rted on their search,

The castle gates were barred;

Above the gloomy portal arch,

Timing his footsteps to a march,

The warder kept his guard;

Low humming, as he paced along,

Some ancient Border gathering song.
