Nimue…the lady of the lake

Faeire queen…it was she who gave the sword Excalibur to Arthur and regained it when he died. She also accompanied three additional faerie queens to Avalon with the body of the slain king.

Alfred Lord Tennyson – Idylls of the King

“And near him stood the Lady of the Lake
Who knows a subtler magic than his own-
Clothed in white samite, mystic, wonderful.
She gave the King his huge cross-hilted sword,
Whereby to drive the heathen out. A mist
Of incense curl’d about her, and her face
Well nigh was hidden in the minster gloom;
But there was heard among the hold hymns
A voice as of the waters, for she dwell
Down in the deep-calm, whatsoever storms
May shake the world- and when the surface rolls,
Hath power to walk the waters like our Lord.”

    Just delightful and another superb addition to the series Sarah. The rays and streams of light really add to the mystery and magnificence.

    Although I couldn’t leave without saying “Oh but you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you!”

  • LOL – I was waiting for your comment!!
