On Revisiting Dunolly Castle
THE CAPTIVE bird was gone;—to cliff or moor Perchance had flown, delivered by the storm; Or he had pined, and sunk to feed the worm: Him found we not; but, climbing a tall tower, There saw, impaved with rude fidelity Of art mosaic, in a roofless floor, An eagle with stretched wings, but beamless eye,— An eagle that could neither wail nor soar. Effigy of the vanished, (shall I dare To call thee so?) or symbol of fierce deeds And of the towering courage which past times Rejoiced in, take, whate’er thou be, a share, Not undeserved, of the memorial rhymes That animate my way where’er it leads!
