THE BEACON O15 Gareth and Lynette, C35 Lancelot and Elaine, fill The Holy Grail, C55 Guine- vere, and CGD The Passing of Arthur. The coming of Arthur reveals the fact that there is a mystery concern- ing our birth and death. We come in- to this world not knowing what will become of us. During life we come up against many difficulties which we must learn to overcome, and be able- to surpass. So it was with Arthur. There is a mystery concerning his birth that can- not be solved. When he was old enough, he became king. He was faced with ma11y difficulties, such as the scorn and hatred of the people. In spite of it all, he made himself Worthy of the great title 'tKing". This poem reveals to us the fact that no matter how hard your task may be, that if you possess the qualities of courage, strength, hope and faith, you are bound to succeed and will reach your hoped for goal. Where there is a will, there is al- ways a way. That is the moral lesson one receives from the poem, "Gareth, Zllld Lynette." NVe should know what our aim and ambition is in life and go forward to victory with all that is i11 us. We should not let mere obstacles stand in our paths, but should conquer them all. We all want a chance in this World to prove ourselves worthy. When the chance comes we should be ready to receive it. After attaining our ambi- tion in life, we should prove ourselves worthy of it. XVe should not stop there but keep on fighting and let our merits mount. Gareth, who symbolizes courage and achievement, starts forth on a quest from King Arthur's Court with Lyn- ette, wl1o symbolizes the world and superficial judgment. If he succeeds his place will be firmly established amongst the knights of the Round Table. On the way he overcomes four knights, who are symbolic of life it- self. Morning Star signifies the temp- tations of youth, Noonday Sun, the foolish temptations of maturity, Eve- ning Star, temptations of old age, and the Black Knight represents death. He is horrible to look upon. Upon clos- er inspection he turns out to be noth- ing more than a harmless, attractive youth. When we meet death, its terror disappears. The fearing of death grows to be a habit. Habit is a cable, we weave a strand of it every day un- til it becomes so strong we cannot break it. Gareth went forward in life Zilld achieved his aim. He was ready when his chance came, and he made the most of it. One is always honored at the end of a hard struggle, and so Gareth was made a knight of Arthur's round table. The one main thought that one re- ceives from the ldyll "Lancelot and Elaine" is the fact that one can pos- sess a great deal of physical courage and yet lack moral courage. Lancelot fails to find happiness in the love of a pure and innocent girl, because of his guilty passion for Queen Guinevere. One may have the physical courage to face the dangers of life, but it takes moral courage and will power to face and overcome the big difficulties and temptations in life. To succeed in life, we must do that thing which we can do best. This is the moral one receives from the Holy Grail. If you start to do something that does not appeal to you, the thing to do is to start something that suits you. lt is like taking the wrong roa-1 i11 traveling, if you do not turn back you will never reach your destina- tion. The Holy Grail was the cup from which Christ drank at the last slipper
