Sir Walter Scott

Here you will find the Poem Country Guy of poet Sir Walter Scott

Country Guy

Ah! County Guy, the hour is nigh,
 The sun has left the lea,
 The orange flower perfumes the bower,
 The breeze is on the sea.
 The lark his lay who thrill'd all day
 Sits hush'd his partner nigh:
 Breeze, bird, and flower confess the hour,
 But where is County Guy?

 The village maid steals through the shade,
 Her shepherd's suit to hear;
To beauty shy, by lattice high,
 Sings high-born Cavalier.
The star of Love, all stars above
 Now reigns o'er earth and sky;
And high and low the influence know--
 But where is County Guy?
