185 Her smile, her speech, with winning sway,

Wiled the old harper's mood away.

With such a look as hermits throw,

When angels stoop to soothe their woe,

He gazed, till fond regret and pride

190 Thrilled to a tear, then thus replied:

"Loveliest and best! thou little know'st

The rank, the honors, thou has

t lost!

O might I live to see thee grace,

In Scotland's court, thy birth-right place,

195 To see my favorite's step advance,

The lightest in the courtly dance,

The cause of every gallant's sigh,

And leading star of every eye,

And theme of every minstrel's art,

200 The Lady of the Bleeding Heart!"note
