3 The Lake-Girl’s Song I’m the lake-king’s daughter And my element is water, But earth and air are joy And I love the farmer’s boy. So I’ll leave my blue sky ceiling For a roof of slate. I’ll leave my cold green room, My water-weed curtains, My bed of water-crowfeet, My blanket weed, For a cool white attic With a window of sky, A white lace curtain And a deep feathered-bed, Pillows of goose-down And a Welsh wool quilt. The farmer’s boy will love me, The sun shine above me. I’m the lake-king’s daughter from the cold grey water GILLIAN CLARKE
