The Wandering Knight’s Song
By John Gibson Lockhart (1794–1854)
 
From the ‘Spanish Ballads’

  MY ornaments are arms,
    My pastime is in war;
My bed is cold upon the wold,
      My lamp yon star.
 
    My journeyings are long,        5
  My slumbers short and broken;
From hill to hill I wander still,
      Kissing thy token.
 
  I ride from land to land,
    I sail from sea to sea;        10
Some day more kind I fate may find,
      Some night kiss thee.
