No. 28. Where, braving angry winter's storms.
Tune: Lament for Abercairtiey Scots Musical Museum, 1788, No. 195.
Where, braving angry winter's storms,
The lofty Ochils rise, Far in their shade my Peggy's charms
First blest my wondering eyes ; As one who by some savage stream
A lonely gem surveys, Astonish'd doubly, marks it beam
With art's most polish'd blaze.
Blest be the wild sequester'd shade,
And blest the day and hour, Where Peggy's charms I first survey'd,
When first I felt their pow'r! The tyrant Death with grim control
May seize my fleeting breath ; But tearing Peggy from my soul
Must be a stronger death.
