"Kilmeny looked up with a lovely grace,
But nae smile was seen on Kilmeny's face;
As still was her look, and as still was her ee,
As the stillness that lay on the emerant lea,
Or the mist that sleeps on a waveless sea.
Such beauty bard may never declare,
For there was no pride nor passion there;
Her seymar was the lily flower,
And her cheek the moss-rose in the shower;
And her voice like the distant melodye
That floats along the twilight sea."
--The Queen's Wake
This story is about a boy named Eric who goes to teach one summer. He meets a beautiful girl one day in the orchard named Kilmeny. He must solve the mystery surrounding her and perhaps--win her love.--Submitted by Key Davis.
