Alan Rickman reads lines from Alfred Lord Tennyson's The Passing Of Arthur Lines From The Passing Of Arthur Idylls Of The King by Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) But, as he walked, King Arthur panted hard, Like one that feels a nightmare on his bed When all the house is mute. So sighed the King, Muttering and murmuring at his ear, "Quick, quick! I fear it is too late, and I shall die." But the other swiftly strode from ridge to ridge, Clothed with his breath, and looking, as he walked, Larger than human on the frozen hills. He heard the deep behind him, and a cry Before. His own thought drove him like a goad. Dry clashed his harness in the icy caves And barren chasms, and all to left and right The bare black cliff clanged round him, as he based His feet on juts of slippery crag that rang Sharp-smitten with the dint of armed heels - And on a sudden, lo! the level lake, And the long glories of the winter moon.
