creatures of all sort in their bazaars.

in the Palace of Seventy Delights,
built of flawless rose-crystal.

Past the eastern gate is a park,
wherein the King build a Norman Abbey
and a small Cornish fishing village,
to resemble his native Cornwall,
to which he can never return,
now that his waking form is dead...
