George Pope Morris

(1802-1864 / USA)

Lord Of The Castle.


'Lord of the castle! oh, where goest thou?
Why is the triumph of pride on thy brow?'
'Pilgrim, my bridal awaits me to-day,
Over the mountains away and away.'

'Flora in beauty and solitude roves,
List'ning for thee in the shade of the groves.'
'Pilgrim, I hasten her truth to repay,
Over the mountains away and away.'

'Guided by honor, how brilliant the road
Leading from cottage to castle abode!'
'Pilgrim, its dictates I learned to obey,
Over the mountains away and away.'

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
