When the King and his courtiers came riding back there sat the lad in rags and a gray moss wig, and he was beating his horse and shouting, "Hie! Hie! Now will you go?"

There was the lad still seated on the nag in the swamp.

Not absolutely always, for she could recall some occasions on which her power had failed; but they were few and slight, and she believed them over.
