Wales: Caerleon-upon-Usk


By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)

(From Idylls of the King)

NOW thrice that morning Guinevere had climbed

The giant tower, from whose high crest, they say,

Men saw the goodly hills of Somerset,

And white sails flying on the yellow sea;

But not to goodly hill or yellow sea

Looked the fair Queen, but up the vale of Usk,

By the flat meadow.
