Section 2
(panels 2 to 5):




Numb were the Beadsman’s fingers,
While he told his rosary
At length burst in the argent revelry
Meantime, across the moors,
Had come young Porphyro

The ancient beadsman prays for his master in the castle while Madeline's family begin their feast. Porphyro begins his journey to the castle.
