Picture of the day
Sir Galahad

"Sir Galahad" is a poem written by Alfred Tennyson and published in his 1842 collection of poetry. As with several of Tennyson's other works, the poem has to do with Arthurian legend; in this poem, Sir Galahad experiences a vision of the Holy Grail. Tennyson revisited this topic in his Idylls of the King.

In this illustration from a 1901 edition, an apparition appears to Galahad, urging him to continue his quest:

Then move the trees, the copses nod,
Wings flutter, voices hover clear:
"O just and faithful knight of God!
Ride on! the prize is near."
