Farewell for aye: a salt tear dims
The eye, that never wept before ;
Our mortal pilgrimage is o’er,
And now we part to meet no more!
Our lay of joy is past and gone,
That once in vaulted halls we sung;
Alas! our final peal hath rung
Of mirth, high dames and lords among :
And now we gaze with sadness on
The narrow home where song must end;
There no merry lays ascend
Where my feeble footsteps wend.
Here on this oak that bourgeons fair,
I'll hang thy wires of witching tone;
The passing breeze will cause them moan,
And swell my requiem when I'm gone.
The traveller faint will list'ning stare,
And marvel whence thy sounds proceed, 107
The fairy king in buxom weed,
Will leave his dance to hear thy rede.
She'll hear thee woo'd by wandering gale,
Rise sweetly in thy midnight song,
*Now, rapid roll, full ton'd, and strong,
Now, low and dying, weep along.
Oh! she will hear thee oft bewail
The fate of lovers true, and tell
How many an evil tide befell
Maids, who have lov'd but all too well.
The steel-clad knight as home be wends, From battle toils, and sieges dire, Will pause, and check his courser's fire, And under thy old oak retire:
For, lo! thy song of triumph blends Its warlike notes with rustling breeze; And falling, rising, through the trees, Mimes his old hall's festivities.
O Harp! be still a little while,
Nor wake thy dirge of, melting numbers,
Stay till thy master calmly slumbers,
Where no bale his bliss encumbers.
Now, take with thee his last faint smile,
And benison, in death's arms given,
Oh now begin thy mournful steven,
And waft my soul on it to heaven!
