NARRATIVE ON PRINT -

I STOOD on Keptie Hill at early dawn,
And, in the Orient, saw the glorious light
Again triumphing o'er the drowsy night,—
Shedding his beams athwart the dewy lawn.

Beneath me lay the yellow-ripened corn,
But lately girded up in golden sheaves ;
The birds were piping 'mongst the scattered leaves
Their cheerful music to the red-cheeked morn :
But ah ! their notes my bosom failed to move,
For now I mourned an absent lady-love.

I stood at midnight on the Keptie Hill,
And, gazing seaward, saw the pale light rest
Serenely on the murmuring water's breast
(The town beneath in sleep profound lay still) ;

O had my lady-love been that chaste moon,
That shone upon the blue expanse so bright,
Kissing away the shadows of the night,
And I that richly-favoured sea, how soon
Would I have yielded to her pure embrace,
And murmured not while I beheld her face.

POEM - MY LADY LOVE
BY DAVID MELVILLE - 1883
