Beyond Grace (The unwritten verse) by Ron C Leonard. Tribute to Alfred Lord Tennyson's The Lady of Shallot Our lady now is still driven The curse is broke she forgiven; Her sad eyes reflecting heaven Return’d to stars as was given; Beyond tower’d wall’d Camelot; One last web shield not yet started Reserve’d for her soul departed; Go where hearts need not be parted, The Lady of Shalott.
