Verona Valentine


Cruelty and Love's Divine


The Queen stands and stares in all her splendor
Her sweet and crooked smile could hide her horrors
Expensive shoes and dresses to sustain her glamour
All these things concealed her wicked contour

The Queen’s husband was the King
And oh he was great and mighty
They also had a daughter; the Princess
She had the beauty of a divinity

The Queen forbids for her to play
Oh that cruel rotten Queen!
The Princess weeps and inside she stays
Sheds all her woes and tears unseen

The Princess, ever so delightful
Smiles and waves to all their subjects
Yet her heart that’s kept in the cold and dark
Has still not lost its prospect

The Princess had a lover
A youthful man fit to be divine
They kissed and held each other
In the castle’s dark and clandestine

Once the Princess dared
To be with him for some time
She dared to sneak and leave
With the Queen’s anger burned in mind

The Queen has found the Princess in a man’s arms
And she breaches all world’s calm
She shook with all her rage, that ugly divine
Breaking free from her cold facade’s design

The Princess and her love depart
The Queen kept her in her golden prison
She smiles and waves with her broken heart
Holding on her future freedom as a reason

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
