O, famous daughter of England, this is she,
Great by land and great by sea.
Thine island loves thee well,
thou great sailor since our world began.
Now, to the roll of muffled drums,
To thee the greatest soldier comes.
“As the Wheel of Time turns, places wear many names. Men wear many names, many faces. Different faces, but always the same man. Yet no one knows the Great Pattern the Wheel weaves, or even the Pattern of an Age. We can only watch, and study, and hope.”
