Many a time, I well remember, I have gazed with Childish awe At the bullet-hole remaining in the sturdy oaken door, Turning round half-apprehensive (recking not how time had fled) Of the lurking, savage foeman from whose musket it was sped.. Not far off, the barn, plethoric with the autumn's harvest spoils, Holds the farmer's well-earned trophies--the guerdon of...
