The Princess in the Tower


The Princess sings:

    I am the princess up in the tower
        And I dream the whole day thro'
    Of a knight who shall come with a silver spear
        And a waving plume of blue.

    I am the princess up in the tower,
        And I dream my dreams by day,
    But sometimes I wake, and my eyes are wet,
        When the dusk is deep and gray.

    For the peasant lovers go by beneath,
        I hear them laugh and kiss,
    And I forget my day-dream knight,
        And long for a love like this.


The Minstrel sings:

    I lie beside the princess' tower,
        So close she cannot see my face,
    And watch her dreaming all day long,
        And bending with a lily's grace.

    Her cheeks are paler than the moon
        That sails along a sunny sky,
    And yet her silent mouth is red
        Where tender words and kisses lie.

    I am a minstrel with a harp,
        For love of her my songs are sweet,
    And yet I dare not lift the voice
        That lies so far beneath her feet.


The Knight sings:

    O princess cease your dreams awhile
        And look adown your tower's gray side--
    The princess gazes far away,
        Nor hears nor heeds the words I cried.

    Perchance my heart was overbold,
        God made her dreams too pure to break,
    She sees the angels in the air
        Fly to and fro for Mary's sake.

    Farewell, I mount and go my way,
     --But oh her hair the sun sifts thro'--
    The tilts and tourneys wait my spear,
        I am the Knight of the Plume of Blue.
