Queen Guennivar's Round

from: Cornish Ballads and Other Poems (Pp. 168 - 169)  1869


                     I.
Naid for Grecian waters!
   Nymph for the fountain-side!
But old Cornwall's bounding daughters
   For gay Dundagel's tide.

                     II.
The wild wind proudly gathers
   Round the ladies of the land;
And the blue wave of their fathers
   Is joyful where they stand.

                     III.
Naiad for Grecian waters!
   Nymph for the foutain-side!
But old Cornwall's bounding daughters
   For gray Dundagel's tide.

                     IV.
Yes! when memory rejoices
   In her long-belovèd theme,
Fair forms and thrilling voices
   Will mingle with my dream.

                     V.
Naiad for Grecian waters!
   Nymph for the foutain-side!
But old Cornwall's bounding daughters
   For gray Dundagel's tide.
