seek your life.
Old Norv. I will inform you how. ?
Old Norv. For being what you are, ini . Sir Malcolm's heir : how else have you offended ?
When they were gone, I hied me to my cottage,
Doug. I scorn it not.
Old Norv. I fear you will, too far.
Doug. Here in this place, I wait my mother's coming: she shall know What thou hast told : her counsel I will follow ; And cautious ever are a mother's counsels. You must depart; your presence may prevent Our interview.
Old Noro. My blessing rest upon thee!; O may heaven's hand, which saved thee from the
wave, · And from the sword of foes, be near thee still ;
Turning mischance, if aught hangs o'er thy head, All upon mine!
[Exit OLD NORVAL. Doug. He loves me like a parent; And must not, shall not, lose the son he loves, Although his son has found a nobler father.Eventful day! how hast thou changed my state ! Once on the cold and winter-shaded side Of a bleak hill mischance had rooted me, .. Never to thrive, child of another soil : Transplanted now to the gay sunny vale, Like the green thorn of May my fortune flowers." Ye glorious stars ! high heaven's resplendent host ! To whom I oft have of my lot complain’d, Hear and record my soul's unalter'd wish! Dead or alive, let me but be renown'd! May heaven inspire some fierce gigantic Dane, To give a bold defiance to our host! ... ; Before he speaks it out I will accept ; Like Douglas conquer, or like Douglas die..
Enter LADY RANDOLPH. Lady Rand. My son ! I heard a voice Doug The voice was mine. Lady Rand. Didst thou complain aloud to
; Nature's ear,
That thus in dusky shades, at midnight hours, By stealth the mother and the son should meet ?
[Embracing him. Doug. No; on this happy day, this better birth
day, My thoughts and words are all of hope and joy. Lady Rand. Sad fear and melancholy still di
Doug. First, let me tell
Lady Rand. My heart forebodes some eyil !
Doug: 'Tis not good.At eve, unseen by Randolph and Glenalvon, The good old Norval in the grove o’erheard Their conversation ; oft they mention'd me With dreadful threatnings; you they sometimes
named. 'Twas strange, they said, a wonderful discovery; And ever and anon they vow'd revenge. Lady Rand. Defend us, gracious God! we are
betray'd: They have found out the secret of thy birth; It must be so. That is the great discovery.
Sir Malcolm's heir is come to claim his own; '
Doug. And leave you here? No: to the castle let us go together, Call up the ancient servants of your house, Who in their youth did eat your father's bread; Then tell them loudly that I am your son. If in the breasts of men one spark remains Of sacred love, fidelity, or pity, Some in your cause will arm. I ask but few To drive those spoilers from my father's house. Lady Rand. O Nature, Nature! what can check
thy force ?Thou genuine offspring of the daring Douglas ! But rush not on destruction : save thyself, And I am safe. To me they mean no harm. Thy stay but risks thy precious life in vain. That winding path conducts thee to the river,
