Into the kingdom did he bring the sweet
And lovely maiden he called Kate. Beauty,
It was hers from her head down to her feet,
But sorrw lad beneath that deep beauty.
She was not happy with her new found life.
She had been captured and wished to be free;
She did not want to be the great King's wife
And sought a way to leave and to be free.
Kate asked the King why he had brought her here.
He said, he had a deep and lasting love
For her, since he had seen her face. "My dear,"
He said, "can't you try to find lasting love
In me as I in you." She said, "if I
Could find a way to love you I would die."
He kept her in his castle so to see
If her love for him would become and so
She sat all day and watched the windy sea
And cried and cried for home. And when her low
Mood reached it's highest peak, she tried to run
Away from the kingdom. but she could not
So she decided to the ocean plunge.
She'd rather die than marry or get caught.
When he found that she had taken her life,
He felt as if he should also die, too.
He loved her and wanted her as his wife
And he took his dagger and plunged it through
His heart and died for love for his Kathleen
The loveliest Kate he had ever seen.
