70. The Villain
 
WHILE joy gave clouds the light of stars, 
  That beamed where'er they looked; 
And calves and lambs had tottering knees, 
  Excited, while they sucked; 
  
While every bird enjoyed his song,         5
Without one thought of harm or wrong— 
I turned my head and saw the wind, 
  Not far from where I stood, 
Dragging the corn by her golden hair, 
  Into a dark and lonely wood.  10
