"With a bound and a leap, he cleared the side,/ And strode the deck with his former pride!/ Once more he leaned against the helm--/ Once more he was lord of the watery realm! With all her garments fluttering wild,/ On the deck the fisherman's child/ Stood by the lady, who proudly sat/ On a little throne, where an Indian mat/ Mantled the floor, like a flowery moss. Low at her feet pale Roland sat,/ Gazing up in her radiant face,/ And said: 'In such a time and place/ How sweet were song, did thy voice but grace/ The air with melody!' Roland listened, confused, amazed,/ While an unknown frenzy filled his heart,/ And Agatha on the lady gazed/ With steadfast eyes and lips apart!/ And there sat the friar smoothing his beard,/ As into the maiden's eyes he peered/ With a sidelong sinister glance."--Vide T.B. Read's "House by the Sea." [P. 14.]
