„She left the web, she left the loom,
She made three paces through the room,
She saw the water-lily bloom,
She saw the helmet and the plume,
She looked down to Camelot.“

—  Alfred, Lord Tennyson, The Lady of Shalott
The Lady of Shalott (1832), Context: She left the web, she left the loom, She made three paces through the room, She saw the water-lily bloom, She saw the helmet and the plume, She looked down to Camelot. Out flew the web and floated wide; The mirror cracked from side to side; "The curse is come upon me," cried The Lady of Shalott. Pt. III, st. 5

„Ill times may be; she hath no thought of time:
She reigns beside the waters yet in pride.“

Like to a queen in pride of place, she wears The splendour of a crown in Radcliffe's dome. Well fare she, well! As perfect beauty fares; And those high places, that are beauty's home.</p "Oxford"
