John Stanyan Bigg
For him no silver cressets shed their light,
No eager joy-bells sounded through the night
From city minster, or from village tower;
No loud "hurrahs," sent from deep-chested men,
Lifted the midnight mist from off the glen
In celebration of his natal hour.
Bigg quotes
He came, and no man knew it; no man knew
The wondrous boon to Scotland given;
That thereóbeneath that grim and wintry blueó
A glorious Poet, strong and true,
Had newly dropp'd from heaven!
