  1. “heard a carol, mornful holy,
    chanted loudly, chanted lowly
    ’till her blood was frozen slowly,
    and her eyes darken’d wholly
    turn’d tward camelot:
    for ere she reach’d upon the tide
    the first house by the water-side
    singing in her song, she died
    The Lady of Shalott.

  2. Lovely! “He said she has a lovely face…god in his mercy lent her grace, the Lady of Shallot…”
