One thought on “Cynthia’s Lamp:

  1. Victoria Ekelund on said:

    “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”.
