The Lady of Shallot.

My favourite poem is 'The Lady of Shallot' by Lord Alfred Tennyson.

It evokes those childhood romances of a Arthurian legend, Camelot, knights in shining amour, and dying for love. The lady of Shallot is a tragic poem, and it has been beautifully captured by artists buring the 28th Century. Most famously, J W Waterhouse in 1888. 

Sooooo romantic.
