Edwin

.

The hero of Beattie’s Minstrel.        

“And yet poro Edwin was no vulgar boy;

Deep thought oft seemed to fix his infant eye,

Dainties he heeded not, nor gaud, nor toy,

Save one short pipe of rudest minstrelsy;

Silent when glad; affectionate, though shy.

And now his look was most demurely sad;

And now he laughed aloud, yet none knew why.

The neighbours stared and sighed, yet blessed the lad:

Some deemed him wondrous wise, and some believed him mad.”


Canto i. 16.
