THE PET LAMB
The dew was falling fast, the stars began to blink;
I heard a voice: it said, â€œ Drink, pretty creature,
And, looking oer the hedge, before me I espied
A snow-white mountain-lamb, with a Maiden at its
No other sheep were near, the lamb was all alone,
And by a slender cord was tethered to a stone;
With one knee on the grass did the little Maiden
While to that mountain-lamb, she gave its evening
2 , The Pet Lamb,
The lamb, while from her hand he thus his supper
Seemed to feast with head and ears; and his tail
with pleasure shook.
â€œDrink, pretty creature, drink, she said in such a
That I almost received her heart into my own.
"Twas little Barbara Lewthwaite, a child of beauty
I watched them with delight; they were a lovely pair.
Now with her empty can the Maiden turned away; -
But ere ten yards were gone her footsteps did she
Towards the lamb she looked ; and from that shady
I unobserved could see the workings of her face;
If Nature to her tongue could measured numbers
Thus, thought I, to her lamb that little Maid might
3 The Pet Lamb,
â€œWhat ails thee, young One? What? Why pull so
at thy cord? |
Isit not well with thee? Well both for bed and board?
Thy plot of grass is soft, and green as grass can be;
Rest, little young One, rest; whatis't that aileth thee?
â€œWhat is it thou wouldst seek ? What is wanting to
thy heart? |
Thy limbs are they not strong? And beautiful thou
art : |
This grass is tender grass; those flowers they have
no peers ;
And that green corn all day is rustling in thy ears!
â€œlf theâ€™sun; be shining Hoewdo ut stretch thy â€”
This beech is standing by, its covert thou canst gain ;
For rain and mountain storms, the like thou need'st
The rain and storm are things which scarcely can
The Pet Lambo. 4
â€œ Rest, little young One, rest; thou hast forgot the day
When my father found thee first in places far away:
Many flocks were on the hills, but thou wert owned
And thy mother from thy side for evermore was gone.
â€œHe took thee in his arms, and in pity brought
A blessed day for thee! then whither wouldst thou
A faithful nurse thou hast; the dam that did thee
Upon the mountain tops no kinder could have been.
â€œThou knowâ€™st that twice a day I have brought
thee in this can )
Fresh water from the broalg as clear as ever ran;
And twice in the day, when the ground is wet with
1 bring thee draughts of milk, warm milk it is and
The Pet Lamb, â€” | 5
â€œThy limbs will shortly be twice as stout as they
Then [ll yoke thee to my cart like a pony in the
My playmate thou shalt be; and when the wind is
Our hearth shall be thy bed, our notse shall be
â€œTt will not, will not rest !â€”poor creature, can it be
That â€˜tis thy mother's heart which is working so in
Things that I know not of belike to thee are dear,
And dreams of things which thou canst neither see
â€™ nor hear.
â€œAlas, the mountain-tops that look so green and fair!
I've heard of fearful winds and darkness that come Â©
The little brooks that seem all pastime and all play,
When they are angry, roar like lions for their prey
The Pet Lamb. 6
â€œHere thou needâ€™st not dread the raven in the sky;
Night and day thou art safeâ€”our cottage is hard by.
Why bleat so after me? Why pull so at thy chain?
Sleepâ€”and at break of day I will come to thee again!â€
_ As homeward through the lane I went with lazy feet,
This song to myself did I oftentimes repeat ;
And it seemed, as I retraced the ballad line by line,
That but half of it was theirs, and one half of it
Again, and once again, did I repeat the song;
â€œNay, said I, â€œmore than half to the damsel must
, belong, â€”
For she looked with such a look, and she spake
with such a tone,
That I almost received her heart into my own.â€
