All nations have their omens drear,
• Their Legends wild of woe and fear.—Scott.

Here still the Legendary tale goes round
Of charms, and spells, of treasures lost and found,
Ol fearful goblins, and malicious sprites,
Hof. and enamoured knights.-Drummond.

The mightiest chiefs of British song
Scorned not such Legends to prolong ;
They gleam thro' Spenser's elfin dream.
And mix in Milton's heavenly theme—Scott.
