560 The wondering stranger round him gazed,

And next the fallen weapon raised-

Few were the arms whose sinewy strength,

Sufficed to stretch it forth at length.

And as the brand he poised and swayed,

565 "I never knew but one," he said,

"Whose stalwart arm might brook to wieldnote

A blade like this in ba

ttle-field."

She sighed, then smiled and took the word:

"You see the guardian champion's sword;

570 As light it trembles in his hand,

As in my grasp a hazel wand;

My sire's tall form might grace the part

Of Ferragus, or Ascabart;note

But in the absent giant's hold

575 Are women now, and menials old."
