Name: Eleanor Mowbray
School: The King's School-Peterborough
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: "I built my soul a lordly pleasure-house, Wherein at ease for aye to dwell. I said, “O soul, make merry and carouse, Dear Soul, for all is well.” And “while the world runs round and round,” I said, “Reign thou apart, a quiet king, Still as, while Saturn whirls, his steadfast shade Sleeps on his luminous ring” To which my soul made answer readily: “Trust me, in bliss I shall abide In this great mansion, that is built for me, So royal-rich and wide.” She, mouldering with the dull earth’s mouldering sod, Inwrapt tenfold in slothful shame, Lay there exiled from eternal God, Lost to her place and name; And death and life she hated equally, And nothing saw, for her despair, But dreadful time, dreadful eternity, No comfort anywhere; So when four years were wholly finished She threw her royal robes away. “Make me a cottage in the vale” Said she, “Where I may mourn and pray” “Yet pull not down my palace towers, that are So lightly, beautifully built: Perchance I may return with others there When I have purged my guilt.” Adapted from "The Palace of Art" - Tennyson.
