A war well fought as heroes paid.

Young Spoils Of The Forest
Covered with green wigs.
They are ebony like me.

The forest shields her nakedness.

Who would pluck that elegant flower? 
Daffodils taste...

Where minds in thrall by minstrels 
Were held
With tales revealing

The currency of glory and shame.

Who does not marvel at 
Achilles's pride
A ruthless killing machine...
