   "Feathers of Swans in my pillow- I cede my heart. Make haste! 
   - I pray- respond my plea!"
   -"Lo! - a sire of great awe- a knight of many battles!"
   "And of kinsmen weeping for the slain!

   
   * On the next part just play A on the given moments(=*)...
                               (* refers to text below)
   E --5--  = A  (or powerchord A on guitar)

   - On his knees... A plea to harvest roses; No need for the thorns
             *                        *         
   yon count! Wherefore vow me? Wherefore this guilded proffer? 
     *                     *                    *      
   Wherefore not pay court to a maid more fair? - Morn of joyous day!

   Hower 'twixt weed! Fertile desert! Cheerful dirge! Misery me not!
                    *         *                   *
   - man nor beast; envy me; Lest 'tis an act of wont! (RiffG)


   RiffG
e  [--------------------------]  This riff serves as a bridge to 
B  [--------------------------]  riffA. The timing sounds strange  
G  [--------------------------]  on this riff, so a marked it in
D  [--------------------------]  the text below...
A  [--------------6--8--6--5--]
E  [--5--6--5--6--------------]

    +    +   +   +     +    +  +  +  # 
   Many are the drapes that my past bury -

   (+ notes of riffG; # first note of riffA) 
   
   play riffA 3x
   play riffC 4x
   end with fill:
e  [---------------]
B  [---------------]
G  [---------------]
D  [---------------]
A  [----------5~~--]
E  [--6-6--5-------]
