King Hildebrand is anxiously awaiting the arrival of King Gama. He
One never knows.
She’s a strange girl, I’ve heard, and does odd things!
Come, bustle there!
For Gama place the richest robes we own –
For Gama place the coarsest prison dress –
For Gama let our best spare bed be aired –
For Gama let our deepest dungeon yawn –
For Gama lay the costliest banquet out –
For Gama place cold water and dry bread!
For as King Gama brings the Princess here,
Or brings her not, so shall King Gama have
Much more than everything – much less than nothing!
