A medieval princess with her ladies-in-waiting who have just broken the news to her that her lover has died while on a pilgrimage.
Then stepped a damsel to her sideThe tokens they offer her include a staff, a rosary, and a pouch hung with cockle shells, the symbol of a pilgrimage to the shrine of Saint James in Spain. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1898-1901)
And spoke and needs must weep:
For his sake, lady, if he died
He prayed of thee to keep
This staff and scrip. - D. G. Rossetti
