216 queen eleanoe's confession.
"And do you see yon pretty little girl,
That's a' beclad in green ? She's a friar's daughter, oure in France,
And I hoped to see her a queen.
" O wasna that a sin, and a very great sin ! « But I hope it will pardoned be :"
"Amen ! Amen ! " quoth the Earl Marshall, And a fear't heart still had he.
" 0 do you see yon other little hoy,
That's playing at the ba' ? ™
He is King Henry's only son, And I like him warst of a'.
" He's headed like a buck," she said,
"And backed like a bear,"— "Amen ! " quoth the King, in the King's ain voice, is
" He shall be my only heir."
The King look'd over his left shoulder,
An angry man was he : "An it werna for the oath I sware,
Earl Marshall, thou shouldst dee." so
