Pàgina 94 - AND is this — Yarrow ? — This the Stream Of which my fancy cherished, So faithfully, a waking dream ? An image that hath perished ! O that some Minstrel's harp were near, To utter notes of gladness, And chase this silence from the air, That fills my heart with sadness...
Pàgina 96 - I, have scouted and marched together on the flanks and rear of the inimy, in nights darker than this, and that too, when we did not know, but the next moment would lead us into a bloody ambushment. I was at his side, when he got the wound in his shoulder, and the honest fellow will tell you, when you meet, the manner in which we contrived to cross the river that lay in our rear, in order to save his scalp.
