King Arthur:The adage "blood is thicker than water" was invented by undeserving relatives.
King Pellinore:Who is that, Arthur?
King Arthur:One of what we all are, Pelly. Less than a drop in the great, blue motion of the sunlit sea. But it seems that some of the drops sparkle, Pelly. Some of them do sparkle! Run, boy! Run, boy!
[first spoken lines]
King Arthur:Why is Guinevere in that castle, behind walls I cannot enter? Why am I on the far side on the channel on this dark and dismal plain waiting an angry dawn to do battle against the man I love, for the woman I love?
Chorus:In that dawn, in that gloom, / More than love met its doom, / In the dying embers' gleam / Came the sundown of a dream.
