Unflappable in the wind,
The letters attach like sewn tapestry.
Tradition of lovers and humanists stand
In ancient moonlight.
No need of a Norman conquest to last
Eleven centuries on cloth.
But the year 3030?
Literati and soulful air,
of hearts and psyche given
will infuse the great, great,
great grandchildren
to frolic and breathe in
the hope and continuity
of each verse.
