Here is the text for you to enjoy it:
Proofread by Claire Deakin.
She was more fair than words can say;
Barefooted came the beggar maid
Before the king Cophetua.
In robe and crown the king stept down,
To meet and greet her on her way;
“It is no wonder,” said the lords,
“She is more beautiful than day.”
As shines the moon in clouded skies,
She in her poor attire was seen;
One praised her ankles, one her eyes,
One her dark hair and love-some mien.
So sweet a face, such angel grace,
In all that land had never been.
Cophetua swore a royal oath:
“This beggar maid shall be my queen.”
