–James Haliwell’s Dictionary of Archaic Provincial Words, 1855
“Up and away! for lovely paths are these
To tread, when the glad Sun is on his throne;
Less pleasant, and less safe, when Cynthia’s lamp
With doubtful glimmer lights the dreary forest.”
Ettrick Forrest quoted by Walter Scott in “Ivanhoe”.
