A blithesome rout, that morning tide,

Had sought the chapel of St. Bride.

480 Her troth Tombea's Mary gavenote

To Norman, heir of Armandave.

And, issuing from the Gothic arch,

The bridal now resumed their march.

In rude, but glad procession, came

485 Bonneted sire and coif-clad dame;

And plaided youth, with jest and jeer,

Which snooden maiden would not hear:

And children, that, unwitting why,

Len

t the gay shout their shrilly cry;

490 And minstrels, that in measures vied

Before the young and bonny bride,

Whose downcast eye and cheek disclose

The tear and blush of morning rose.

With virgin step, and bashful hand,

495 She held the kerchief's snowy band;

The gallant bridegroom, by her side,

Beheld his prize with victor's pride,

And the glad mother in her ear

Was closely whispering word of cheer.
