- When I rov'd a young Highlander o'er the dark heath,
- And climb'd thy steep summit, oh Morven of snow!
- To gaze on the torrent that thunder'd beneath,
- Or the mist of the tempest that gather'd below;
- Untutor'd by science, a stranger to fear,
- And rude as the rocks, where my infancy grew,
- No feeling, save one, to my bosom was dear;
- Need I say, my sweet Mary, 'twas centred in you?
The Mary mentioned here is Mary Duff, Byron's first love.
