Description

'Why did a great lord find me out
And praise my flaxen hair?
Why did a great lord find me out
To fill my heart with care?'

In this simple ballad, Christina Rossetti tells the story of a 'great lord', a hapless 'cottage-maiden' and her 'good and pure' cousin.

Our lesson plan has students consider difficult questions of legitimacy, sin and marriage before completing one or more writing tasks.
