Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1894 Excerpt: ...Gone are the dear ones that made Wanlock dear; A stranger stands within my Father's door: So changed it is, I will not venture near--'Tis not the Wanlock that I lov'd of yore! THE MYSTERY. No place for me in Wanlock! Vacant chair At board or hearth await me there no more; Barring my entrance, the insensate door That wont to welcome, opes not to my prayer. Forth from this mystery I needs must fare, Seeking sweet solace, as I did of yore By whispering streamlet and on mountain hoar,-But ah! no longer find I comfort there. Calmly as ever on grey Auchenlone The gloaming falls; the dear familiar rills As sweetly in the solitude sing on: But, dead to all the magic of the hills, In me no wakening chord responsive thrills As in my native wilds I walk--alone! CHANGED TIMES. Time was when I could scarce restrain my pace Upon thy mountains, Wanlock; to and fro, From sheer delight, fleet as the bounding roe My eager feet thy winding paths would trace. Now with a sober and deliberate stride I move among them; calmer now the eye That notes the beauties of thy evening sky, Tamer the glance that sweeps thy grey hillside. Yet is it not advancing age alone That quells my ardour; far from thee and me All the associates in that early glee--Father and mother, sister, friend--have gone; And musing on the forms I meet no more With slow sad steps I track thy mountains o'er. TO A LAVEROCK (singing In The Calm Shkugh). If thy heart were as sad as mine, sweet bird, That sing'st in Wanlock like a thing inspired, Methinks thy tender breast could ne'er be fired To pour such strains--the sweetest ever heard. Ay, sweet indeed they are; and yet there seems A note of sadness in their keenest joy; Is thy bliss too, then, not without alloy? Do ghosts of dear ones haunt thy songs and dreams? A...
