When the King came riding in on his big, black horse, a murmur went up, because his tunic was stitched with the words, DECLARE I DARE NOT.
All the ladies were giggling behind their hands, and I asked Mama what it meant.
Her face had turned quite pink and she said, "Never mind," so I asked Rosanna later.
She told me the words meant the King has a new love, but he dares not say her name.
But everyone knows her name, of course. It is Anne Boleyn.
