Holyrood Palace (Poem by Victor Hugo)

the Old Poems

Holyrood Palace
By Victor Hugo


Palace and ruin, bless thee evermore!
Grateful we bow thy gloomy tow'rs before;
For the old King of France hath found in thee
That melancholy hospitality
Which in their royal fortune's evil day,
Stuarts and Bourbons to each other pay.


FOOTNOTE: King Charles X.
