--"a solitary spot%/ Above, the blue old Alps in grandeur rose,/ Their glaciers bright with sunbeams, and their sides/ Dark with thick forests and o'erhanging cliffs%/ Gray, crumbling Castles here and there were seen,/ Relics of olden days and warlike pride./ No more the feudal flag above them flew,/ Nor martial bands upon the ramparts stood,/ But the green ivy waved triumphant there%/ And the wild fir tree crowned each mouldering wall./ Beneath, the golden waters of the Rhine/ Began their course--fed by a thousand brooks/ Just from their rocky prison-house set free,/ Far up the icy hills."--McLellan. [P. 3.]
