…As Merlin fled, the King’s Men rushed out of the city

and followed him in pursuit.


But Merlin was so far ahead of them that he would

have made the safety of the forest

were it not for the river which skirted it.


As the stag leaped over the fast flowing water course,

Merlin slipped from its back and fell into raging torrent.


Lining the river bank, the Kings Men waited for Merlin to swim ashore,

bound him, and then returned to the city with him

were he was handed over to his sister, Ganieda.
