Стр. 23 - ... of thy fault, Thy pledge and broken oath ! And give me back my maiden vow, And give me back my troth.
Стр. 106 - The dust of the prophetic maid. Facing to the northern clime, Thrice he traced the Runic rhyme; Thrice pronounced, in accents dread, The thrilling verse that wakes the dead; Till from out the hollow ground Slowly breathed a sullen sound.
