Subject(s): Great Britain - History; Snowdon (Mountain), Wales; English History


On lonely headlands at a magic cry,
The vanished fortress of a mountain king
Shadows the cliff, and battle trumpets ring
A clear call to adventure, stern and high;
Upon a starry quest armed knights ride by
Where, fairer than the wizard fires of Spring,
The angels of the Grail rise wing on wing
In a wild dawn against the eastern sky.

Then turrets sway; the ragged bastion fails,
A wind-blown mist along the darkening air;
The plumed host sleep on Snowdon's cloudy scar;
And from a haunted tower the raven wails
Of shining hope and deeds that were so fair
Beneath the splendor of the Dragon Star.
