"Then it seems that thou dost repent the folly - but not the sin. Not the act but its uncovering"

The voice of the nun was soft and her figure half shadowed.

The grizzled man in the room with her could hardly bare it. He turned his face away, not wanting to remember, not wanting those images that her words conjured in him, uncovering… a bare shoulder like a sliver of the moon, a parting of fabric and flesh, a parting of trees and bushes and an uncovering then of them both; The face of his King, of his friend, uncovered – and, with a silver flash of sword-metal, a parting of all.

The Abbey was secluded, lodged in the heart of a moat and with the edges of the circling English woods on one side and high forbidding hills on the other. There were many rooms, restful and candle lit. There was the sound of a slow bell and prayerful singing.

and Nimue is she who diligently waits at waters side,
to feel the rippled coming of the tide
whose skin and bone and blood divide
with every oar stroke
dreaming

she's singing
to the stranger
sailing in

to lift the curse of waiting

a lake like liquid silver
midnight's mercury
her fingers cold as steel

she is Nimue
waiting.

Two re-worked folk songs on a theme:


The Handsome Kitchen Boy:

It's of a married Lady as you must understand
She slipped from court to follow
Her true love through the land

She dressed herself in peasant rags
Or so it does appear
To work as a squire and kitchen boy
And serve well for a year

With fingers pale and delicate
And hair all in a curl
The others often smiled and said
"He looks just like a girl!"

The sea at least is honest; it's the land that lies.

Gazing out from the soft slope at the edge of a red sandy cliff, Daniel could barely see the listing ship and could not make out the granite teeth that had abused her so cruelly.

she brushes back her sleeves with a doctor's ease
clasping the documents to her knees
she's moving in rhythm
to the swing of the train
