    At last the Muses rose, . . . And scattered, . . . as they flew,
    Their blooming wreaths from fair Valclusa's bowers
    To Arno's myrtle border.

And see the rivers how they run
Through woods and meads, in shade and sun,
Sometimes swift, sometimes slow,--
Wave succeeding wave, they go
A various journey to the deep,
Like human life to endless sleep!

From Stirling Castle we had seen
The mazy Forth unravelled;
Had trod the banks of Clyde and Tay,
And with the Tweed had travelled;
And when we came to Clovenford,
Then said "my winsome marrow,"
"Whate'er betide, we'll turn aside,
And see the braes of Yarrow."

In those fair fields where sacred Isis glides,
Or else where Cam his winding vales divides?

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through
it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over

timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of
the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters.
