Written With A Diamond On Her Window At Woodstock Comments

Rating: 2.5
Much suspected by me,
Nothing proved can be,
Quoth Elizabeth prisoner.

...

Queen Elizabeth I

Ooops, my computer bounces around while I type. This comment was for the preceding poem. I admit that I like the idea of this being etched into a window pane by a royal diamond. Lots of graffiti is written in prison cells- -very few with a diamond! !

This was said to be written on a wall or shutter while she was at house arrest during the reign of her half-sister, Mary I, at Woodstock in Oxfordshire. Apparently 16th century prisoners often wrote messages and poems on walls and shutters. She is piquing my interest.
