Rudolph is w . baron _
He dreams till noon on a pillow fine ;:
From the dusk of eve till the dusk of da
Drinking deep , of the. amber wine. '
But Ludovic, the p easant,
Lies like a deer in the dewy brake ;
With his broad hand for a drinking cup,
Stlxrps to a breezy lake.

With hawk, and pack, and mounted
Ludovic, with a single hound,
Wanders afoot o er the windy plain.
The one will rest in a silken tent,
When the quarry is' dropped, and therm)
The other lies in the , cleft of a rock,
Under a hemlock shade.
Budolphwill give me a palfry white ;
With silken - saddle and stirrup of gold;
But Lodovic, in f his arm of strength,
Ras-borne me far throngh the heat and
The noble has promised a chain of gems,
. Broidered kerchief , and mantle gay;
The peasant will sheer'ine a fleece, to en*.
A gown for my wedding day.
What should do with jewels
On my'neck, that is brown with the sun
How*out(' I fasten m' loose long hair •
With a comb of peaitor a golden chain
I'll crown it Pair with a nityrtle wreath, ,
I'll Rather it back with a ribbon_ gay ;
And I'll wrap myself in my peasant's cl-
To keep the cold away! •
I hold l my breath in yon lone old hills;
Echoes that lurk in the niches there,.
Say over my. words with a hollow laugh,
Stealthily follow,from stair to stair ;
&nights and dames on,the pictured wall "
Look, as I pass, with a steadfast frown;
And the mastiff that's chained in the cast'
Barks at my peasant's gown.
I)rnow a roof where the wild grass bangs - '
From moss and mould to the cabin door ,
I know a bound that.will crotrb and fawn
At the a n :d of my.step on the rush-strern fl

To match the pride of a fait** neck, 1
