A Humble Quill

Soft, moon light, spill forth the night.
Stream rippling veils of mystery.
Where tucked away, the insatiate act,
unrivaled in thy debauchery.

Whilst Lords and Gentry, by noble birth,
plot to cozen all gentle souls.
Their wives will scamper off to trysts,
showing morals that are beneath low.

Drunken bucks will gamble all,
bring low family coffers and names.
They will ruin many a young lass,
then run, from honor and bring shame.

And all the while, I am here.
A humble quill and my ink well.
Lying in wait to spread the ill.
For tis scandle I love to tell.

    ' rippling veils of mystery,' after that line I was eager to consume the rest. Super rhyming and language. May your quill spread more scandal and debauchery! Best wishes, Keith

    This has such a classical feel to it, Paula. Make me wonder if it's for that one contest about old English? How are you? I rarely visit the list of new poems by poets. But sometimes when I do, i catch poems of people like you that I don't quite see as much here as I would like. Hope you are well. Luv, Andrea
