Текст оригинала на английском языке
LOWTHER! in thy majestic pile are seen Cathedral pomp and grace, in apt accord With the baronial castle’s sterner mien: Union significant of God adored, And charters won and guarded by the sword Of ancient honor; whence that goodly state Of polity which wise men venerate, And will maintain, if God his help afford. Hourly the democratic torrent swells; For airy promises and hopes suborned The strength of backward-looking thoughts is scorned. Fall if ye must, ye towers and pinnacles, With what ye symbolize; authentic story Will say ye disappeared with England’s glory!
