The Prisoner of the Castle
Of warriors and steeds has at length died away;
Unprofaned is the hour by the tumult of battle,
That crimsoned yon sward at the dawn of the day.
All is still o'er the landscape–but not in the soul
Of the captive, whose eyes from his bastioned recess,
Toward yon distance-dimmed castle and hamlet still roll,
While thus he pours forth his lone tale of distress:
"The time has gone by when my courage or madness
"Ah! there my poor mother her needle is plying,
"How my father will cover his woe-speaking features
"Ah, fool that I was, to make light of that treasure
[These lines were written in Italy, on observing two castles upon mountain-ranges, placed within sight of each other, where the events here spoken of may be readily imagined to have occurred during the uneeasing Baronial feuds of the middle ages.]
