48"Oh," cried Lizzie, "Laura, Laura, 49 You should not peep at goblin men."

Lizzie cover'd up her eyes, 51 Cover'd close lest they should look;

Laura rear'd her glossy head, 53 and whisper'd like the restless brook:

54"Look, Lizzie, look, Lizzie, 55 Down the glen tramp little men.

One hauls a basket, 57 One bears a plate, 58 One lugs a golden dish

Of many pounds weight.

Whose grapes are so luscious;

How warm the wind must blow

Through those fruit bushes."

In the pleasant weather.

Like a rush-imbedded swan, 83 Like a lily from the beck, 84 Like a moonlit poplar branch, 85 Like a vessel at the launch

When its last restraint is gone.
