Eleanor and National Buttercup Day

Of course, Eleanor has never heard this song — she has players and jongleurs at the castle who play the lute and flute, but no piano, guitar, or other strange instruments she has never even heard of. Most certainly, no one would ever sing a song with words such as these! Eleanor blushes. However, the lyrics most certainly resonate with her….”Why do you build me up, Buttercup, just to break my heart?” She sighs and looks out the window at her forest. Why, indeed, does Lord Hugh build her up briefly — and then break her heart? Her vision blurs with tears and she lifts a handkerchief to her eyes. Why cannot he long for her the way she longs for him? Oh, would that he might think of her as a “buttercup!” What can she do?
