their drenched natures lie as in a death,
of our great quell? Mac.
Bring forth men-children only; for thy undaunted mettle should compose nothing but males. Will it not be received, when we have marked with blood those sleepy two of his own chamber, and used their very daggers,
that they have done 't ? L. M.
Who dares receive it other, as we shall make our griefs and clamour roar
upon his death? llac.
I am settled, and bend up each corporal agent to this terrible feat. Away, and mock the time with fairest show: false face must hide what the false heart doth know.
whose howl's his watch, thus with his stealthy pace,
Rosse TET not your ears despise my tongue for ever,
I which shall possess them with the heaviest sound,
that ever yet they heard. Macd.
Humph! I guess at it. Rosse Your castle is surprised; your wife and babes
savagely slaughtered : to relate the manner,
to add the death of you. Mal.
Merciful heaven !What, man! ne'er pull your hat upon your brows; give sorrow words : the grief that does not speak
whispers the o'er-fraught heart, and bids it break. Macd. My children too? Rosse
Wife, children, servants, all that could be found. Macd.
And I must be from thence! My wife killed too? Rosse
I have said. Mal.
Be comforted: let's make us medicines of our great revenge,
to cure this deadly grief.
did you say, all ?-0, hell-kite !-All?
at one fell swoop ?
I shall do so;
that were most precious to me.—Did heaven look on, and would not take their part? Sinful Macduff, they were all struck for thee! naught that I am, not for thine own demerits, but for mine,
fell slaughter on their souls: heaven rest them now! Mal. Be this the whetstone of your sword : let grief
convert to anger; blunt not the heart, enrage it. Macd. O, I could play the woman with mine eyes,
and braggart with my tongue !-But, gentle heavens,
This tune goes manly.
LOCHINVAR 0, YOUNG Lochinvar is come out of the west, U through all the wide border his steed was the
best; and save his good broad-sword he weapon had none, he rode all unarmed, and he rode all alone. So faithful in love, and so dauntless in war, there never was knight like the young Lochinvar. He staid not for brake, and he stopped not for stone, he swam the Eske river where ford there was none; but ere he alighted at Netherby gate, the bride had consented, the gallant came late: for a laggard in love, and a dastard in war, was to wed the fair Ellen of brave Lochinvar. So boldly he entered the Netherby Hall among bride's-men and kinsmen and brothers and all; then spoke the bride's father, his hand on his sword, (for the poor craven bridegroom said never a word,) 'O come ye in peace here, or come ye in war, or to dance at our bridal, young lord Lochinvar?'
*I long wooed your daughter, my suit you denied ;love swells like the Solway, but ebbs like its tideand now I am come, with this lost love of mine, to lead but one measure, drink one cup of wine. There are maidens in Scotland more lovely by far, that would gladly be bride to the young Lochinvar.' The bride kissed the goblet; the knight took it up, he quaffed off the wine, and he threw down the cup; she looked down to blush, and she looked up to sigh, with a smile on her lips, and a tear in her eye. He took her soft hand, ere her mother could bar,"Now tread we a nieasure!' said young Lochinvar. So stately his form, and so lovely her face, that never a hall such a galliard did grace; while her mother did fret, and her father did fume, and the bridegroom stood dangling his bonnet and
plume; and the bride-maidens whispered, “Twere better by far to have matched our fair cousin with young Loch
invar.' One touch to her hand, and one word in her ear, when they reached the halldoor, and the charger
stood near; so light to the croupe the fair lady he swung, so light to the saddle before her he sprung! ‘She is won! we are gone, over bank, bush and
scaur ; they'll have fleet steeds that follow,' quoth young Lochinvar.
SIR W. SCOTT
nor think of woes to come;
1114 What though we shroud in savage den
from day's all-piercing eye?
our watchful fears,
our perils, cares,
with men and prosper! who shall fix
she sets her forward countenance
and leaps into the future chance, submitting all things to desire.
