The Hostile Brothers

Rating: 5.0
Yonder, on the mountain summit,
Lies the castle wrapped in night;
In the valley gleam the sparkles
Struck from clashing swords in fight.

Brothers they who thus in fury
Fierce encounter hand to hand ;
Say, what cause could make a brother
'Gainst a brother turn his brand ?
Countess Laura's beaming glances

P1 A Fatal Feud Residue Of Fading Reasons were they thinking with testosterone muscle not brain? upon their deaths did she mourn them indifferent or in pain? did she die a virgin virtuous or soon depart with another suitor? as for fallen two brothers fatal folly was it naught but life hate hate wasted?

Can An Anger Hate Feud Be Stopped? were Countess Laura's beaming glances young girl flirt glances? were they purity of heart a young girl's joy happy innocent glances? was Countess Laura enjoying ego attention or did she hate the feud? did she sincere attempt to dissuade two brothers from a moral deadly fight? Inspired by the poem 'The Hostile Brothers', by the poet Heinrich Heine. Dedicated to the poet Henrich Heine.

P3 A Love Tempest Violent Left A Ruin Of Hate has dark time proved she was beloved worth fighting over? did brothers wonderer why women desire to be fought over? did she have a choice even want to evil desire be fought over? one wonders who of choice two brothers the beloved loved? did the brothers not think to ask her no in their vanity never! did she encourage conflict savouring a duel fought over her?
