Given my name, one would believe
I descend from some noble claim;
but crown I have yet to receive,
given my name.

In my heart glows a royal flame,
a light that none may ever thieve,
so bright it puts the stars to shame.

When, of this life, I take my leave,
let hope remain; good faith and fame
remembered, and a realm to grieve—
given my name.
