Here eglantine embalm'd the air,
  Hawthorne and hazel mingled there;
    The primrose pale, the violet flower,
      Found in each cliff a narrow bower;
        Fox-glove and nightshade, side by side,
          Emblems of punishment and pride,
            Group'd their dark hues with every stain
              The weather-beaten crags retain.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto I, st. 12)
        [Flowers]

In listening mood she seemed to stand,
  The guardian Naiad of the strand.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto I, st. 17)
        [Listening]

A foot more light, a step more true,
  Ne'er from the heath-flower dashed the dew.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto I, st. 18)
        [Footsteps]

And ne'er did Grecian chisel trace
  A Nymph, a Naiad, or a Grace,
    Of finer form, or lovelier face!
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto I, st. 18)
        [Beauty]

Forward and frolic glee was there,
  The will to do, the soul to dare.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto I, st. 21)
        [Merriment]

Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking,
  Morn of toil, nor night of waking.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto I, st. 31)
        [Sleep]

Soldier, rest! thy warfare o'er,
  Dream of fighting fields no more:
    Sleep the sleep that knows not breaking,
      Morn of toll, nor night of waking.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto I, st. 31)
        [Soldiers]

I'll dream no more--by mainly mind
  Not even in sleep is well resigned.
    My midnight orisons said o'er,
      I'll turn to rest and dream no more.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto I, st. 35)
        [Dreams]

And children know,
  Instinctive taught, the friend and foe.

Hail to the Chief who in triumph advances.

        [Victory]

Some feelings are to mortals given,
  With less of earth in them than heaven.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto II, st. 22)
        [Feeling]

Delightful praise!--like summer rose,
  That brighter in the dew-drop glows,
    The bashful maiden's cheek appear'd,
      For Douglas spoke, and Malcolm heard.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto II, st. 24)
        [Praise]

Time rolls his ceaseless course.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto III, st. 1)
        [Proverbs : Time]

Like the dew on the mountain,
  Like the foam on the river,
    Like the bubble on the fountain,
      Thou are gone, and for ever!
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto III, st. 16)
        [Death : Loss]

The summer dawn's reflected hue
  To purple changed Lock Katrine blue,
    Mildly and soft the western breeze
      Just kiss'd the lake, just stirr'd the trees,
        And the pleased lake, like maiden coy,
          Trembled but dimpled not for joy.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto III, st. 2)
        [Summer]

The sickening pang of hope deferr'd.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto III, st. 22)
        [Hope]

The rose is fairest when 'tis budding new,
  And hope is brightest when it dawns from fears;
    The rose is sweetest wash'd with morning dew,
      And love is loveliest when embalm'd in tears.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto IV)
        [Proverbs : Roses]

The rose is fairest when 'tis budding new.

And the stern joy which warriors feel
  In foemen worthy of their steel.

Come one, come all! this rock shall fly
  From its firm base, as soon as I.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto V, st. 10)
        [Bravery : Courage]

Who o'er the herd would wish to reign,
  Fantastic, fickle, fierce, and vain?
    Vain as the leaf upon the stream,
      And fickle as a changeful dream;
        Fantastic as a woman's mood,
          And fierce as Frenzy's fever'd blood--
            Thou many-headed monster thing,
              Oh, who would wish to be thy king?
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto V, st. 30)
        [Public]

One blast upon his bugle horn
  Were worth a thousand men.
      - The Lady of the Lake (canto VI, st. 18)
        [War]

Yell whoop. Jack! Kiss Gillian the quicker,
  Till she bloom like a rose, and a fig for the vicar!
