By Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832)
From Lay of Last Minstrel

  THE UNEARTHLY voices ceased,
And the heavy sound was still;
It died on the river’s breast,
And it died on the side of the hill;
But round Lord David’s tower        5
The sound still floated near,
For it rung in the Lady’s bower,
And it rung in the Lady’s ear;
She raised her stately head,
And her heart throbbed high with pride,—        10
“Your mountains shall bend,
And your streams shall ascend,
Ere Margaret be our foeman’s bride.”
