"In comic fock!" methinks indignant
Some grave, faftidious friend, with angry
Scowling fevere, “No more the phrase abufe:
"So fhort, indeed, there had been fome ex ufe;
"But in these walls, a once well known
" Where taste and learning kept a favourite feat
"Where gothic arches, with a folemn shade, "Should o'er the thoughtful mind their influence fpread;
"Where pictures, vafes, bufts, and precious things,
"Still fpeak of fages, poets, heroes, kings, "On which the ftranger looks with penfive gaze
"And thinks upon the worth of other days!
"Like foolish children, in their mimic play,
Confined at grandame's on a rainy day, "With paltry farce, and all its bastard train,
"Grotefque and broad, fuch precincts to profane !
"It is a fhame!-But, no: I will not fpeak
"I feel the blood rife mantling, to my cheek."
Should thefe remember'd fcenes in fancy live
And to fome future minutes pleasure give, To right good end 'we've worn our mumming guife,
And we're repaid and happy-aye and wife.
Who fays we are not, on his fombre birth
When her curtain had hook of its own accord,
And the Raven had flapp'd at her window-board,
To tell of her warrior's doom! "Now fing ye the death fong, and loudly pray
"For the foul of my knight fo dear: "And call me a widow. this wretched day, "Since the warning of God is here! "For a Night-mare rides on my ftrangled fleep
"The lord of my bofom is doom'd to die;
"His valorous heart they have wounded deep;
"And the blood-red tears fhall his country
For Wallace of Elderflie!"
Yet knew not his country that ominous hour,
Ere the loud matin bell was rung, That a trumpet of death on an English
Had the Dirge of her Champion fung! When his dungeon light look'd dim and
No anthem was fung at his holy death bed, No weeping there was when his bofom
And his heart was rent in twain !
Oh, it was not thus when his oaken fpear Was true to that knight forlorn,
And hofts of a thoufaud were fcatter'd,
At the blast of the hunter's horn; When he ftrode on the wreck of each wellfought field,
With the yellow-hair'd chiefs of his native land;
Gay fancy fmil'd not, nor heart-lightening For his lance was not fhiver'd on helmet
