Text heard on Sample:
So many true princesses who have gone
Over the sea, as love or duty bade,
To share abroad, till Death, a foreign throne,
Have given all things, and been ill repaid.

Hatred has followed them and bitter days.
But this most lovely woman and loved Queen
Filled all the English nation with her praise;
We gather now to keep her memory green.

John Masefield (1878-1967)
