Melrose
 
And he a solemn sacred plight,
Did to St. Bride of Douglas make,
That he a pilgrimage would take
To Melrose Abbey——
        Scott.—Lay of the Last Minstrel, Canto VI. Verse 27.
  1
If thou would’st view fair Melrose aright,
Go visit it by the pale moonlight;
For the gay beams of lightsome day,
Gild, but to flout, the ruins grey.
        Scott.—Lay of the Last Minstrel, Canto II. Verse 1.
