in class assignment l0l

inspired by and shamelessly ripped off of "Easter, 1916" by William Butler Yeats

I have heard from hushed voices
Of connections new and old
Underneath the light of the candle
About the table we were told.
About the retribution through blood
Brought on by discovery
Through a night in the pub
From a disillusioned companion
Around the fire at the club
A terrible beauty had been born
The revolution has begun
Where the motley was once worn

    I am happy you are shameless in your "rip off" It is so clever and written by a very talented writer. I'm so glad I found your work. Kathy

    Motley derived from the 14th century in England.....I enjoyed your poetry and am amazed at "sooner or Later" everything travels around our world.
