Guinevere at Her Fireside

by
 A nobler king had never breath-
I say it now, and said it then.
Who weds with such is wed till death And wedded stays in Heaven.
Amen.
(And oh, the shirts of linen-lawn, And all the armor, tagged and tied, And church on Sundays, dusk and dawn.
And bed a thing to kneel beside!) The bravest one stood tall above The rest, and watched me as a light.
I heard and heard them talk of love; I'd naught to do but think, at night.
The bravest man has littlest brains; That chalky fool from Astolat With all her dying and her pains!- Thank God, I helped him over that.
I found him not unfair to see- I like a man with peppered hair! And thus it came about.
Ah, me, Tristram was busied otherwhere.
.

.
A nobler king had never breath- I say it now, and said it then.
Who weds with such is wed till death And wedded stays in Heaven.
Amen.
