No more for the eager squire
1767-9.-----WELCOME AND FAREWELL.
A thousand times her image it portrays;Enchanting now, and now compell'd to go,
Who're in my service, love me.Ha, I am the lord of earth! The noble,
Unchequer'd by alloy;The sacred double-numbers then
Before her breath, as 'neath the spring's soft wind,In its deep wintry cavern melts away
While the anchor they weigh, heaving it up from the sand;Come, Alexis, oh come!"--My worthy stout-hearted father
Should such torments grieve us, then?Doth not Timur's rule destroy
So tow'rd the sun, now fast sinking to rest, the two walk'd together,Whilst he veil'd himself deep in clouds which thunder portended.Out-of his veil now here, now there, with fiery glancesBeaming over the plain with rays foreboding and lurid."May this threatening weather," said Hermann, "not bring to us shortlyHail and violent rain, for well does the harvest now promise."And they both rejoiced in the corn so lofty and waving,Well nigh reaching the heads of the two tall figures that walk'd there.Then the maiden spoke to her friendly leader as follows"Generous youth, to whom I shall owe a kind destiny shortly,Shelter and home, when so many poor exiles must weather the tempest,In the first place tell me all about your good parents,Whom I intend to serve with all my soul from hence-forward;Knowing one's master, 'tis easier far to give satisfaction,By rememb'ring the things which he deems of the highest importance,And on which he has set his heart with the greatest decision.Tell me, then, how best I can win your father and mother."
