Then wilt thou not, O King, Make trial of thy'wisdom? Which is wax, And which the rain and sun? Auvergne goes to the window and opens it. Auvergne. Come hither, tiny arbiters of the air, Winged seekers of God's sweetness through the world, And solve my riddle I Adelle. Look, the clouds break! The Sun, O King! Adelle stands by the window and lets the sun flood over her. Auvergne. The sun? Behold they settle where the rose is sweet. Did I not know? Look how the bees have judged. Alas, that in this world men know not true from false. I know it not, though I am king. Why wilt thou not turn and look? Suddenly Adelle tears away her veil and shrieks. Auvergne. What ails my queen? Adelle. Oh! Oh! Oh! Auvergne. Hath the sun maddened thee? Adelle. Oh God! Auvergne. Who are you, looking at me with such eyes? Adelle. Sister, where are you? There is someone walking in my brain To drive me out. I do not know who she is, Oh, God!--Auvergne. Who is she? Adelle. Oh, do not touch me! Sister. Daughter--Adelle. Save me, O God, save me! Sister. I am with you, what do you see? Adelle. A cloud passed from the earth. Look, look, And tell me am I mad? Or is it he that's mad? Is he not my cousin there, Auvergne? Doctor. Speak to her now, hold her if you can. Sister. It is Auvergne. Come away, come away, child! Adelle. Is he not Gawain, sobbing by the door? Whose face is like a beast's. Gawain wails as he crouches by the door. Auvergne. Silence thy crying in our court, thou dog! Who is this woman glowering at me That rends our court with noise? Sister. Will you not come with me? Adelle. Look where his eyes burn! Do not come more
