"Fair dreams are these," the maiden cried

-Light was her accent, yet she sighed-

"Yet is this mossy rock to me

Worth splendid chair and canopy;

205 Nor would my footsteps spring more gay

In courtly dance than blithe strathspey,note

Nor half so pleased mine ear incline

To royal minstrel's lay as thine.

And then for suitors proud and high,

210 To bend before my conquering eye-

Thou, flattering bard! thyself wilt say,

That grim Sir Roderick owns its sway.

The Saxon scourge, Clan-Alpine's pride,note

The terror of Loch-Lomond's side,

215 Would, at my suit, thou know'st, delay

A Lennox foray-for a day."note
