Many years ago, as the story is
told, a brave knight decided to
solve the mystery of the woods and
called his helpers, took a net and
asked his priest to accompany him
into the woods. The party of men
journeyed to the lake where the
priest blessed the undertaking. The
brave knight and his men threw
the net into the lake. A fierce
struggle took place.
The lake heaved and the waves
pounded the shore. The priest
prayed for the brave knight. The
waters grew calm and the net was
landed. A beautiful maiden with
a wreath of water lilies in her
golden hair was entangled in the
ropes. She freed herself and ad
dressed the knight.
‘Rahs knight! Thy lineage and
piety combined protect thee, else
hadst thou farmed a grave with all
thy following, in this adventure
But as thou art of godly mind and
as we are akin by blood, through
long descent, it is vouchsafed to
me this once to break the mystic
silence of the centuries and to re
veal to thee the secret of the lake,
and’ mine, its lily queen."
