A Second in Court

A Second in Court A déjà vu to centuries past is just a quantum peak to glimpse the courtly, avant-garde in session to critique Baroque and Renaissance displays, pointing as they speak, admiring slight anomaly that makes some art unique. With ennui they gave no ear to a dilettante’s entreat knowing only, it’s the king and queen’s élan you have to meet. A cacophony of tongues gossiped outcomes so discreet, stood waiting for the bona fide applause, “Oh magnifique!” Royal people had carte blanche to make artists great or weak sometimes not ever finding those with natural technique. iambic heptameter 14 syllables a line 1/26/18

Iambic heptameter is difficult, expecially with restriction like the use of ten words... you wrote a wonderful poem Janis.. Congratulations on your first place in the contest
