A CAPTIVE in the Giant's hold-The dark Enchanter's hold-she lay:And, coiling scaly fold in fold,The Dragon watched from day to day.2

SThe walls were strongwith spell and charm,The moats were deep,Sthe guards were bold.Oh! who can brook the Giant's arm ?Or who can burst the Dragon's fold?4


The walls had rung with clash and shout;With dint of feet the turf was worn;Red splashes marked the stones about;Yet none could sound the Fairy Horn.And still the Dragon watching lay,From morn to night, from night to morn;And still the Giant held his prey,Till one should sound the Fairy Horn.5

A youth of presence like a girl:His hair like silk, his eyes like flowers;Serenely playing with a curl,He gazed upon the gloomy towers.He pinched his ears to make them red,He waved his hands to make them white,His long hair blew about his head-In troth, he was a pretty sight.IO0

His trim sword dangled at his side,Against his hip his hand was set,And rather vanity than prideShone in his eyes' pure violet.ILAbout him lay the valiant dead,Around him stretched the fatal field;He laughed aloud, and idly readThe legend on each broken shield.12


Read with a fashionable drawl,And sneered a pretty sneer to see/- I-9PThat "Virtus" had not conquered all,Nor "Veritas" held victory.'3
