The Lady of Shabbat

Hung in the golden galaxy

below the starry clusters bright

the moon heard a whisper say

no other care hath she

The Lady of “Shabbat”

Merrily a royal cheer

a skimming song, a carol holy 

 robed in snowy white 

 water lilies in starry trailing light

floated down to Camelot

Who is this? and what is here?

like to some of stars we see

 by garden wall and gallery

robed in willowy hills and fields

The lady of “Shabbat”

Moving through a mirror clear

in the dazzling crystal river

she has heard a whisper say

” She has a lovely face

God in his mercy lend her grace”

 

Under tower and balcony of Camelot

         the Lady of “Shabbat”
