Courtly Love

embroidered-flowers.jpg

 

In days of old,
Or so I ‘m told,
They practiced Courtly Love.
The lords were bold,
The ladies cold,
(Their virtue to uphold.)

*

Two pairs of eyes
Could not disguise
The look of Courtly Love,
The Lord, he flies,
He must devise,
A plan she won’t despise.

 

*

From far he sees
and seeks to please,
First step of Courtly Love,
Despite his pleas,
From him, she flees,
(T’was etiquette to tease).

 

*

On bended knee
Renews his plea,
Such is his Courtly Love,
In town and lea,
Where she is free,
She stings him like a bee.

*

But he persists,
His assets, lists,
The point of Courtly Love,
Should she resist,
He does insist,
He’ll have to slit his wrist.

 

*

His ardour glows,
Much like a rose,
The effect of Courtly Love,
He doth propose,
To fight her foes,
(his love for her he shows)

 

*

She thaws at last,
Her fears are cast,
Aside, for Courtly Love,
And in contrast,
To recent past,
Their love, (or Lust) is vast.

 

*

But they are doomed,
For its assumed,
Always in Courtly Love,
By lies, presume
The danger loomed,
Their love could not resume.

 

*

And so today,
Remember pray,
Forget the Courtly Love,
Please don’t delay,
Make your love stay.
Buy her a rose bouquet,

 

*

Give her some chocks,
Admire her locks,
(A bit like Courtly Love),
When true love knocks,
When your world rocks,
List not to he who mocks!
