Passage

A chieftain, to the Highlands bound, Cries,

“Boatman, do not tarry!

And I’ll give thee a silver pound

To row us o’er the ferry! “–

“Now, who be ye, would cross Lochgyle,

This dark and stormy weather? “

“O, I’m the chief of Ulva’s isle,

And this, Lord Ullin’s daughter.

“And fast before her father’s men

Three days we’ve fled together,

For should he find us in the glen,

My blood would stain the heather.

“His horsemen hard behindus ride

Should they our steps discover,

Then, who will cheer my bonny bride

When they have slain her lover? “–

“And by my word! the bonny bride

In danger shall not tarry;

So, though the waves are raging white,

I’ll row you o’er the ferry. “–

By this the storm grew loud apace,

The water-wraith was shrieking;

And in the scowl of heaven each face

Grew dark as they were speaking.

But still as wilder blew the wind,

And as the night grew drearer,

Adown the glen rode armed men,

Their trampling sounded nearer.

– Thomas Campbell

Passage

When did my childhood go?

Was it the day I ceased to be eleven.

Was it the time I realised that Hell and Heaven,

Could not be found in Geography,

And therefore could not be,

Was that the day!

When did my childhood go?

Was it the time I realised that adults were not

All they seemed to be,

They talked of love an preached of love,

But did not act so lovingly,

Was that the day!

When did my childhood go?

Was it when I found my mind was really mine,

To use whichever way I choose,

Producing thoughts that were not those of

other people

But my own and mine alone

Was that the day!

Where did my childhood go?

It went to some forgotten place.

That is hidden in an infant’s face,

That’s all I know.
