Desiring to be join'd with Guinevere ;
And thinking as he rode, 'Her father said
That there between the man and beast they die.
Shall I not lift her from this land of beasts
Up to my throne, and side by side with me?
What happiness to reign a lonely king,
yo stars that shudder over me,
O earth that soundest hollow under me,
Vext with waste dreams? for saving I be join'd
To her that is the fairest under heaven,
I scom as nothing in the mighty world,
And cannot will my will, nor work my
Wholly, nor make myself in mino own realm.
Victor and lord. But woro I join'd with her,
Then might wo live together as one life,
And reigning with ono will in overything
Have power on this dark land to lighten it,
power on this dead world to make it live.
