THE ORPHAN MAID. NOVEMBER'S hail cloud drifts away, November's sunbeam wan, Looks coldly on the castle grey, When forth comes Lady Anne. The orphan by the oak was set, Her arms, her feet were bare, The hail drops had not melted yet Amid her raven hair. And Dame," she said, by ail the ties That child or mother know, Aid one who never knew those joys, Relieve an or woe." The Lady said, An orphan's state Is sad and hard to bear: Yet worse the widow'U mother's fate, Who mourn's both Lord and Heir. J Twelve times the rolling year has sped I Since while from vengeance wild J Of fierce Strathallan's chief I fled, I Forth's eddies wtudni'ii my child." Twelve times the year its course has borne," The wand'ring maid replied, Since fishers on St. Bridget's mora Drew nets on Campsie side. St. Bridget sent no scaly spoil: An infant well nigh dead They sav'd, and rear'd in want and toil To beg from you her bread." That orphan maid the Lady kiss'd- o. My husband's looks you bear St. Bridget and her morn be blest! I r, You are his widow'd heir. The) 've robed that maid so poor and pale In silk and sandals rare And pearls for drops of frozen hail, Are glitt'ring in her hair. -¡¥,
