This song is based off of Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem “The Lady of Shalott,” and it draws from Shakespearean works and Arthurian Legends. (Here, we are introduced to Lancelot, for example.) It’s a beautiful song and poem, and reminds me of my child self. The self that loved (and still loves) fairy tales, and legends of King Arthur and Morgan Le Fay. It saddens me, but as the years pass, these stories are becoming more and more obscure. I can’t bare to think of them disappearing forever.
