A Scottish Princess Fair

It was a Scottish princess fair

In the sun shining on DunBroch wall

And she would marry a Viking heir

For they made Love lord of all.

 

Blithely they talked of future days

As the sun shone on Dunbroch wall

To help them through the waiting phase

For Love was still lord of all.

 

Her sire gave gowns and jewelry fine

Of the sun shining on Dunbroch hall

His false brother gave a flask of wine

To stand against Love being lord of all.

 

For they would bring peace between the lands

Like the sun shining on DunBroch wall

And the heir refused his brother’s demands

To let him become the lord of all

 

It was not long before they did see

As the sun set on Dunbroch hall

The false brother’s evil and treachery

In his attempt to become lord of all.

 

She is still, the Scottish princess fair

As the sun set on Dunbrach hall

Still in the arms of the Viking heir

For they had made Love lord of all.

 

Justice came swift for the false brother

While the sun set on Dunbroch hall

And leaving his duties to his mother

So Love would still be lord of all.

 

Taking to the skies on his dragon steed

Ere the sun set on Dunbroch hall

Traveling far and wide to fill a need

So Love could stay as lord of all.

Then he fought the false dragon king

In the rising sun at Dunbroch hall

By defeating him gave the Scots wing

So Love would stay the lord of all.

 

But he succumbed to his grief

As the sun set on Dunbroch hall

This young lad, this mighty chief

To Death and Love, the lords of all.

 

And now their weary souls are free

To watch the sun on Dunbroch wall

And knowing that wherever they be

That Love was still the lord of all.

(Based on Sir Walter Scott’s It Was An English Lady Bright)
