Teviot, the River
The Teviot
Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832)
 
(From The Lay of the Last Minstrel)

SWEET Teviot! on thy silver tide
  The glaring bale-fires blaze no more;
No longer steel-clad warriors ride
  Along thy wild and willowed shore;
Where’er thou wind’st, by dale or hill,        5
All, all is peaceful, all is still,
  As if thy waves, since Time was born,
Since first they rolled upon the Tweed,
Had only heard the shepherd’s reed,
  Nor started at the bugle-horn.        10
