. The German classics of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; masterpieces of German literature . 212 THE GERMAN CLASSICS Led they not forth, in rapture, A beauteous maiden there,Resplendent as the morning sun, Beaming ^vith golden hair? Well saw I the ancient parents,Without the crown of pride; They were moving slow, in weeds of woe-No maiden was by their side! SONG OF THE MOUNTAIN BOY* (1806) The mountain shepherd-boy am I;The castles all below me spy.The sun send-s me his earliest beam,Leaves me his latest, lingering gleam.I am the boy of the mountain! The mountain torrents home is here.
