A Poem by Lauren Xena Campbell

My ode to courtly love, chivalry and good old fashion and well missed medieval romance.


I agnise, one was afeared,

To admit the bittersweet for which I now adhere,

The secrete I have come most to advance,

Simply incapable of taking the chance,

To reach for thy inwardness beyond my invention,

Myself the only blockade of prevention,

The tune I speak such an old desant,

O what golden treasures it presents,

For what a complexion could we quest,

In verily I hold thee to such tall affect,

Alder-liefest, bless the moon we met.

So beautifully confessed... your words journey us to another world, distant and wondrous... I was born a few hundred years too late, i'm afeared...

All those hundreds of years ago, when chivalry was beautiful..........and how you capture that feel in your wise words.......beautifully done.

Somewhere on the edge of the imagination

Dreams are not made to be broken, but are created in the heart to write destiny! I've always loved making up stories and putting words down onto paper, despite the fact that I only really learnt to.. more..
