The lady of the lake

The lady of the lake

The lady of the lake on water glides;
fair Guinevere, the bride of Queen Ygraine
sails far, to her beloved King Arthur's terre.

Her kinship with the distant Lord's soul guides
the boat of ebon and bequeathal bane,
his sovereign wraith and her eternal prayer.

    I couldn't find , neither here nor on another site,, must be mistaken then. Well this seems a bit incomplete. I say that since it's Arthurian, and there's Guinevere,one wishes to read more. Add some more whenever you can...

    There must be more, it's not complete... I think I've seen another. Wait I'll check..
