Strange recipes

Tonight I will quench your curiosity about the Queen's room

and the kind of conversation the clever wench had there

with the lad Lancelot she liked so well.

Also, I will let you know what went on with the knight

Sir Gawain, after he gave the hermit good day

and got to the Lake of Green Water, where the Green Maiden

waited for him: what happened and what they said to each other.


there were, magical and mysterious

the end of journeys and far travels

strange recipes and things that are curious

nothing quite on the level.
