Lady St. Claire

Long, long ago, in the Chinese dynasty,

a prince had died without requiem and buried poorly.

The last heir to the throne.

Something must be done.


Desperate to save his kingdom,

the emperor called all maidens to come,

to wed with him and bore his son

to save his fallen generation.


All maidens came and left.

But there's one that cut out from all the rest.

The lady St. Claire, a name so sweet.

She speaks of grace and loved so deep.


The ruler declared his wife

and gave her his life.

They loved so true and passionate

and deep and all so velvet.


No ladies far and wide, and sweet and fair

could win his love for his mistress, sweet St. Claire.
