Flowery Words

Minne, Minstrel, Middle Ages, Costume

From poet’s lips flowery words seem to flow

But it’s but the bards’ illusion

The spells that seem in an instant cast

Are more than mere effusion

The word-play is by practice learned

In hours of verbal profusion

So simple then it does appear

Whether “ad hoc” or an allusion

But if by the flow you are won

Be sure to pay on its conclusion
