In Praise of Avelina

Long has her love         sustained her Lord,

Feeding his fire                 to face his foes.

Keeper of keys                  she kindles hope,

Holding the hearth,         his heart to ease.         

Support she shares,          so he may stand,        5

Gracious and good,         she gives him strength.

Swiftly by skill                 of sword and shield,

Kenrick will rise               to regain her crown.


Written in the Saxon style (made famous by Beowulf) this piece was written as part of the Crown Poetry Project. Kenrick provided me with a letter of praise for Avelina, I set it to verse.
