Página 64 - Pindus' piny shades profound ; But strew some flowers upon thy sable pall, And follow to the grave a Briton's funeral. Slow move the plumed hearse, the mourning train ; I mark the long procession with a sigh, Silently passing to that village fane Where, Harold, thy forefathers mouldering lie; — Where sleeps...
