    She stares out the window
    Of the ivory tower
    Her future, not hers to decide
    She was born in the spring
    And named after a flower
    Lily of the Valley, would
    Soon be a bride.
    She was barely fifteen, not
    A woman, still a child
    Castle gossip always being
    That Lily was quite wild
    She climbed trees and even
    shot arrows like the boys
    Forcing marriage on her was
    Theft of her youthful joys
    Her father was stubborn, but
    The Queen had his ear, she
    Suggested and he accepted,
    They'd discuss it next year!
