Within 'twas brilliant all and light,

A thronging scene of figures bright;

It glowed on Ellen's dazzled sight,

As when the setting sun has given

720 Ten thousand hues to summer even,

And from their tissue, fancy frames

A?rial knights and fairy dames.

Still by Fitz-James her footing stayed;

A few faint steps she forward made,

725 Then slow her drooping head she raised,

And fearful round the presence gazed;

For him she sought, who owned this state,

The dreaded Prince w

hose will was fate!-

She gazed on many a princely port,

730 Might well have ruled a royal court;

On many a splendid garb she gazed-

Then turned bewildered and amazed,

For all stood bare; and, in the room,

Fitz-James alone wore cap and plume.

735 To him each lady's look was lent;

On him each courtier's eye was bent;

Midst furs and silks and jewels sheen,

He stood, in simple Lincoln green,

The center of the glittering ring-

740 And Snowdoun's Knight is Scotland's King.
