THE ELECTED KNIGHT. i9< He wore upon his helm, A wreath of ruddy gold ;
And that gave him the Maidens Three, The youngest was fair to behold. Sir Oluf
questioned the Knight eftsoon If he were come from heaven down ; " Art thou
Christ of Heaven," quoth he. " So will I yield me unto thee." " I am not Christ the
Great, Thou shalt not yield thee yet ; I am an Unknown Knight, Three modest
Maidens have me bedight." " Art thou a Knight elected, And have three Maidens
thee bedight ...

4 THE ELECTED KNIGHT. FROM THE DANISH. [The following strange and
somewhat mystical ballad is from Nyerup and Rahbek's Danske Viser of the
Middle Ages. It seems to refer to the first preaching of Christianity in the North,
and to the institution of Knight- Errantry. The three maidens I suppose to be Faith,
Hope, and Charity. The irregularities of the original have been carefully
preserved in the translation,] SIR OLUF he rideth over the plain, Full seven miles
broad and seven ...

Fair faces crowd on Christmas night Like seven suns arow, But all beyond is the
wolfish wind And the crafty feet of the snow. But through the rout one figure goes
With quick and quiet tread; Her robe is plain, her form is frail— Wait if she turn her
head. I say no word of line or hue, But if that face you see, Your soul shall know
the smile of faith's Awful frivolity. Know that in this grotesque old masque Too
loud we cannot sing, Or dance too wild, or speak too wide To praise a hidden
thing.

So forth we go to meet the strife, We will not fear nor fly ! Love we the holy
warrior's life, His death we hope to die ! We slumber not, that charge in view, ' Toil
on while toil ye may, Then night shall be no night to you, Ye children of the day ! '
LORD GOD, our Glory, THREE IN ONE, Thine own sustain, defend ! And give,
though dim this earthly sun, Thy true light to the end ; Till morning tread the
darkness down, And night be swept away, And infinite sweet triumph crown Thy
children of the ...

Or doth thy bright eye grow more gloriously bright, Where spear strikes with spear
, and knight challenges knight ; Where the plumed crest that glittered the loftiest
there, Is bowed to the dust in thy presence most fair? " Where a knot that hath
fastened thy hair's precious coils, Should be deemed worthiest meed for the
combatants' toils ; Where a smile from thine eye, that ne'er knew how to frown,
Should outweigh chain and charger and Victor's fair crown?" " Sir Knight ! 't is a
grand, ...

Even thus transformed, Rude popular traditions and old tales Shine as immortal
poems, at the touch Of some poor, houseless, homeless, wandering bard, Who
had but a night's lodging for his pains. But there are brighter dreams than those of
Fame, Which are the dreams of Love ! Out of the heart Rises the bright ideal of
these dreams, As from some woodland fount a spirit rises And sinks again into its
silent deeps, Ere the enamored knight can touch her robe ! 'T is this ideal that the

But when did e'er a Scotsman blink A contest, when the strife was drink? No
sooner was the gauntlet thrown, Than each one eyed it as his own, And vowed
aloud, the Danish whistle Would quail before the Scottish Thistle; And so it did :
the Danish Knight Forsook our land in woeful plight, With muddled head, without
his aim— Reft of his whistle and his fame. And Scotland still the relic owns– And
Burns has sung,. *----------~~~~~. --~~~ – * - * Alexander Wilson. 40 A NIGHT ON

Two years had fled since that auspicious night, When music taught how deep the
love she felt, And bade her heart, with exquisite delight Towards him who wooed
her, tenderly to melt In one brief moment; whilst she swiftly spelt An unknown ...
But now her days were mingled with deep care, And oft with agony and doubtful
fear, For of her true knight there no tidings were, And as she thought thereon, the
sparkling tear Would drop from her blue eye, so bright and clear, And sorrow's ...
