SONG (Continued)

"But if beneath yon southern sky

A plaided stranger roam

30 Whose drooping crest and stifled sigh,

And sunken cheek and heavy eye,

Pine for his Highland home;

Then, warrior, then be thine to show

The care that soothes a wanderer's woe;

35 Remember then thy hap ere while,

A stranger in the lonely isle.

"Or if on life's uncertain main

Mishap shall mar thy sail;

If faithful, wise, and brave in vain,

40 Woe, want, and exile thou sustain

Beneath the fickle gale;

Waste not a sigh on fortune changed,

On thankless courts, or friends estranged,

But come where kindred worth shall smile,

45 To greet thee in the lonely isle."
