With the Touch of a Velvet Glove

God Speed ~ Edmund Leighton
With the touch of a velvet glove 

An iron fist of controlling love

Insidious fingers of such jealousy

Tarnished Knight, without chivalry

Rivers of tears,fair maiden did weep

For her soul was not his to keep

She longed to walk in hallowed halls

But withered within his castle walls

~Eily Nash
