Lady of Shalott – Waterhouse


My name is lady Shalott,

Living a half life, watching the world go by

Dare I say your name, Sir lancelot

I have seen you through my mirrors eye.


I did not hesitate for a moment,

For I wish to stay with you

Now my curse has been imposed upon me

My body slowly turning blue


Floating down the river to Camelot

My blood not running anymore.

At least the world is not through the mirror

I see the clouds as I never did before.
