Thank you Joseph, I'd never heard of a lanterne until you hosted a contest, they are quite challenging. Thanks too for hosting. Tom.

A truly brilliant and finely woven creation my friend. A fav, I've always wanted to have a sword collection--instead I collected books.

Well done to have achieved the acrostic according to the prescribed syllabic count and given a great description of your chosen theme, but you've cleverly managed to relate the first and last lines of each to make it a perfect 'lanterne' format. Bravo,Tom!
