Aaf) The Origins, Uk - Poem by Paolo Giuseppe Mazzarello

In 1272, Edward Plantagenet came to the English throne.
He conquered Wales, obtained part of Scotland.
Though there were bloody wars, one sees a singular unity of the Great Island:
One can give another a good beating, in the end people are together.
I don't know if it is why in 1215 a King without land
Shared some land the same with his subjects.
A Hundred Years' War is long,
The most important thing is that one should not care about the enemy in the end.
In the fifteenth century Henry the Navigator discovered Guinea,
England discovered a good idea
In the end of the century it discovered Another One even better.

Topic(s) of this poem: discovery, kingdoms, war and peace

Form: Kennings
