Then Roderick, with impatient look,

From Brian's hand the symbol took:

"Speed, Malise, speed!" he said, and gave

285 The crosslet to his henchman brave.

"The muster-place be Lanrick mead-note

Instant the time-speed, Malise, speed!"

Like heath-bird, when the hawks pursue,

A barge across Loch Katrine flew;

290 High stood the henchman

on the prow,

So rapidly the barge-men row,

The bubbles, where they launched the boat,

Were all unbroken and afloat,

Dancing in foam and ripple still,

295 When it had neared the mainland hill;

And from the silver beach's side

Still was the prow three fathom wide,

When lightly bounded to the land

The messenger of blood and brand.
