Sir W. Scott
CLXXXVI. A Serenade
AH! County Guy, the hour is nigh, 
  The sun has left the lea; 
The orange-flower perfumes the bower; 
  The breeze is on the sea; 
The lark, his lay who thrill'd all day,         5
  Sits hush'd his partner nigh: 
Breeze, bird, and flower confess the hour, 
  But where is County Guy? 
The village maid steals through the shade 
  Her shepherd's suit to hear;  10
To Beauty shy, by lattice high, 
  Sings high-born cavalier. 
The star of Love, all stars above, 
  Now reigns o'er earth and sky, 
And high and low the influence know—  15
  But where is County Guy?
