Her golden hair streamed free from band,
Her fair cheek rested on her hand,
Her blue eyes sought the west afar,
For lovers love the Western star.
Scott.—Last Minstrel, Canto III. Stanza 24.

Her head was bare,
But for her native ornament of hair;
Which in a simple knot was tied above,
Sweet negligence unheeded bait of love.
Dryden.—Meleager and Atalanta.
