After a Line by Geoffrey Chaucer
Your yen two wol slee me sodenly

Surrounded by warm sand
Black pools deep as the
Cold in your face

Your hand
With emollient grace
Will cut the wire

Carved then polished
Hair that twists as
In a Spring flood

Your two eyes will slay me suddenly...

Or is that second hand?

What’s yours? 
Chaucer trotted on a horse
John Betjeman via choo choo trains
The knowledgeable Omar Khayyam by camel
Well my preferred transport a fast motorbike
Am I mad or are we all mad?

Poet vehicles not used in this piece:  Rhyme, rhetorical devices, and patience!

                                on the famous Ellesmere manuscript.

Porous Pen's Pear
crushed concerto cruised
bounty braces bruised
salient seal scrunchy
dark diminuendo dusty
lanky hoists lured
vying voluptuous lurch

wet wits wanky
punctured pills curvy
hoisted heels hefty

saucy syllables scared
hoity bills bear
porous pen's pear

lofty gaunt gifts
etched airy gills.

Note: Dedicated to Chaucer....

Form: Sonnet
Dark is my white domain
White knights of hate 
strode through some kind of gate
banners bared high, 
or negro
who cares?
I own the world! 
Chaucer beware! With
Nose cone dipped in blood and white powder
I writ futures
Mine in gold runes
Theirs on streaming water
Through their pride
My ignorance shines bright
To spread this hate gospel
And hope that they don't waken
To my coward facades.

He didn’t care for Wilde,
And Chaucer was ‘alright,’
But quoted from The Bard
At morning, noon and night.

He loved the characters,
The funny and bizarre -
And fat old Falstaff was 
His favourite by far.

He liked Malvolio,
And never tired of Hal,
He felt for Timon too -
And would have been his pal.

He lived for Will Shakespeare -
His name could make him smile.
I guess he’s not alone - 
His words make life worthwhile!
