    The little questioner he set,
    And to his daughter playful turned,
    Whose cheeks with recent tears were wet, —
    "Come, Ola ! hear a tale I learned
    Long since ; 'tis one will suit thee well,
    Sit thou beside me while I tell !"

The torch of the day-star at eve slow expiring ;
Again dost behold, with thine opening eye,
His flambeau rekindled, the Orient firing.

E'er told thee of Quelling, the maiden immortal ?
Of Delling, the youth, with his locks amber-bright,
Who bears it, relighted, through Morn's flashing portal ?
