A description of the experience
Robert Stephen Hawker from the Quest of the Sangraal
The Queen! The Queen how haughty on the dais!
The sunset tangled in her golden hair;
A dove amid the eagles – Gwennivar!
Aishah! What might is in that glorious eye!
See their tamed lion from Brocelian's glade,
Crouched on the granite like a captive king!
A word – a gesture – or a mute caress -
How fiercely fond he droops his billowy main,
And woos, with tawny lip, his lady's hand
