The ballad of Jayne, a poem to my wife


My love, my faire, I dream of thee
Thine softest smile, golden haire

All things mine would I forsake
Of thy love might I partake

Faire Gwendolyn, easily, would I spurn
This broken kingdom sure return

My king, betrayal, I would not have shown
Had thy beauty then been known

And now with greate sorrow do I behold
Thy sweet love and fairness untold

Your servant in all things, Lancelot

    A poignant rendition my friend. Any past transgressions....surely forgiven! In fact this might get you a free pass to sow further wild oats. Got to admit you're pretty smooth. (Report) Reply
