"And Arthur yet had done no deed of arms,
but heard the call and came; and Guinevere
Stood by the castle walls to watch him pass;
But since he wore neither helm or shield,
The golden symbol of his kinglihood,
But rode a simple knight among his knights,
And many of those richer in arms than he,
She saw him not, or mark'd not, if she saw,
One among many, tho' his face was bare.
But Arthur, looking downward as he past,
Felt the light of her eyes into his life . . . "

Alfred, Lord Tennyson Idylls of the King
