To Nan; Anne Boleyn

From: Doomed Queens and Moribund Maidens

To Nan

Defiled was your name full sore,
Through falsehood and ill report.
No justice for you,
Most loyal of kings subjects.

From marchioness to Queen
To Martyred Saint,
From Caesar’s you were,
Would-be lady of cold
Northumberland.

Bravely, as buds
Bloomed in May,
You turned your sweet
Visage towards
Eternity.

Defiled is your name
No more—
That kindest Muse of all,
History—
Has wiped your fate
Clean.

Regal Virginia’s blessings
Your name have restored,
And Honor, Sympathy
And Grace
Rise with you from the
Grave,

Your lute strings
Echo the
Music of the Sphe
