Youve got to admire multi-lingual people- youve really got to admire multi-lingual people where one of the languages they speak is a dead language such as Old English. This alliterative verse, not translated into prose nor modern verse form, was somewhat difficult for me to really get into, as it were.

Pieces like Marlowes Passionate Shepherd or Shakespeares Sonnet 27 lend themselves to memory- this stuff does not. It is neat, though, to imagine this stuff being recited in a mead-hall in 11th century England.Oh, I did love those medieval compound-nouns! Good stuff, Maynard.
