Fiercely he broke away, nor stopp’d, 
Nor look’d — but from the lattice dropp’d 
Down ‘mid the pointed crags beneath, 
As if he fled from love to death.

But, hark ! — she stops — she listens — dreadful tone ! 
‘Tis her Tormentor’s laugh — and now a groan.

Scarce had she said 
These breathless words when a voice deep and dread 
As that of MONKER waking up the dead 
From their first sleep— so startling ‘twas to both— 
Rang thro’ the casement near, “Thy oath! thy oath!”
