Thank you J Cosmo Newbery...
For returning to the duel...
I am (though some would say it counts for little) honored and delighted- more than I can actually say~
The poems shall be posted no later than Sunset on Monday night...July 17th (Are we all 3 in the same time zone?) at the respective blogs:
J Cosmo Newbery
If these 2 gentlemen will email me their poems I will post them at Mayden's Voyage as well...in no particular order of course!
Percy continues to press for votes...and I am sure, as is the nature of humans who want a say in all things...there will indeed be votes~ To be cast at Mayden's Voyage.
(A decision should be made by Wednesday July 19th at Sunset...)
However, I will take all input into consideration...but the final sway must be mine, as it is MY virtue, grace, honor, and tacky photos at risk here for 30 days.
If another Knight, or- ummm, canine, or letter of the alphabet decide to join in the fray, please let me know.
May I kindly thank each and everyone of you who have seen this thing through from beginning to end~ From my admirers to those with lower opinions of me. :(
As to a detractor who questioned if a maid was ever "worth it"- my reply came in the form of, you guessed it, a poem. Most of you have read it, but since it is mine I will re-post it here at MV.
A thousand ships launched,
And Dragons Slayed~
Sampsons secret spilled-
For the love of a "maid"...
Villages burned to a crisp-
Knights mortally wounded,
For a maidens kiss.
And was the risk worth it?
Was the maid worth the blood?
As his arms encircled her body-
He knew- he'd have died for her love!
But what of THIS duel?
One of words, prose and wit?
Oh- These men will be safe,
No blood will be spilt!
And what of the maid?
She's embarrased, but glad-
This is( by far)the most bloggy fun,
She's EVER had!!!
