Thy pardon, Father, I beseech, In this my prayer if I offend; One something sees beyond his reach From childhood to his journeys end. My wife, our little boy Aignan, Have travelled even to Narbonne; My grandchild has seen Perpignan; And Ihave not seen Carcassonne.
Carcassonne. Translated by John Reuben Thompson. Stanza 5.
