"A hoary Scandinavian,/ A poet of the north;/ In mystic midnight reveries,/ His form is shadowed forth. Dark ages hang all mantle-like,/ Upon his stately form;/ He cometh as the moon comes through,/ The drapery of the storm. He chanteth low and musingly,/ The ancient runic rhyme;/ His gray eye looketh inwardly,/ For there each thought sublime,/ Glows on the page of Memory,/ The register of Time. [Pp. 7-8.]
