TO WALTER SCOTT; MELROSE, by            
First Line: How often has he lingered here alone
Last Line: While the green slopes flush slowly to the plow.
Subject(s): Melrose Monastery, Scotland; Scott, Sir Walter (1771-1832)


HOW often has he lingered here alone
In such a golden evensong of spring,
Making the eye-sweet melody of stone
More lovely by his words' accompanying --
Singing for very youth of heart, compelled
By the keen urge of beauty, even as now
Tweed sings along the valley, April-swelled,
While the green slopes flush slowly to the plow.
