D - While The Princes Slept.

While the Princes slept:
An unseen hand.
While a secret kept:
Reached through their dreams.
As cold steel sparked,
eyes wide awake!
While the Princes slept.

While the Princes slept:
A destiny lost.
While a secret kept:
Then to bear a cross.
With a crown of gold
and tragedy told
while the Princes slept.

While the Princes wept:
A nation felt grief.
While the Princes kept:
The lonely vigil.
And a coffin fetched
for an Uncrowned Queen;
while the Princes slept.

For her sons.

who passed the eleven plus;
so after all the excitement
and a great amount of fuss;
entered the establishment
of Huntingdon Grammar School
to apply herself forthwith
when following all the rules.
