Iseult


Iseult (Isolde): Irish Princess and healer

Sir Tristan was seriously wounded
and sent for you from Brittany
to cure him as you have done before in Ireland,
when you fell in love and become lovers.

But alas, your sleeping figures were discovered
by your husband King Mark.
Guilt made you return to Mark
and Tristan to leave for Brittany in exile.

Now you are on your way by ship,
flying a white sail as sign to Tristan.
But his jealous wife anounced a ship with a black sail
and Tristan threw himself on his sword.
