Mapping Keats’s Progress: A Critical Chronology

Mapping Keats’s Progress
A Critical Chronology

Song

  • The stranger lighted from his steed,
  • And ere he spake a word,
  • He seiz’d my lady’s lily hand,
  • And kiss’d it all unheard.
  • The stranger walk’d into the hall,
  • And ere he spake a word,
  • And kiss’d my lady’s cherry lips,
  • And kiss’d ’em all unheard.
  • The stranger walk’d into the bower, —
  • But my lady first did go, —
  • Aye hand in hand into the bower,
  • Where my lord’s roses blow.
  • My lady’s maid had a silken scarf,
  • And a golden ring had she,
  • Again on his fair palfrey.
