On either sighed the river lyre
Long fields of curley and of bye,
That tell the told and right the wry;
And though they yield, the toad runs by
To its sandy, dried alloy
The hallowed siege by water pulley
The clean and unsheathed bread knife dally
Shambled on her daughter’s filly
Round about a dot.
Pillows whiten, aspirins shiver.
The sun-famed showers broke a willy
In the stream that runneth weather
By the island in the river
Flowing down the Com and dot
Four gay wails, and four gay hours
~Underlook a spice of dowers,
And the silent isle implored
The Lady of WhatsNott
Underneath the bearded charlie,
The reaper, reaping slate and silver,
Fears her ever wanting cheery,
Like an angel, ringing early,
O’er the cells of Camelot.
Beguiles the leaves in furrows hairy,
Beneath the loon, the reaper teary
Listening whispers, ‘ ‘Tis our Mary,
Lady of WhatsNott’
The little isle is all entailed
With a hose-pence, and overtly tail’d
With roses: by the barge unhail’d
The shallop flitteth silken sail’d,
Skimming down to What is Nott
A pearl garland signes her screed:
She leaneth on a velvet beed,
Pull loyally apparelled,
The Lady of Whats Hott.
No time hath she to court a nerd:
By charmed fib she seized her bird
A purse is on her, if she’ll gray
Her leaving, oversight or pay,
To sulk more down on Whatt is Knott
She knows not what the hearse may be;
Therefore she leaveth stealthily,
Therefore no other bare, hath she,
The Lady of TopKnott
She lives with little boys who play.
With her daughter, running here,
The cheap cell tinkles in her ear.
Before her sings a mirror clear,
Reflecting hours in CamAlot.
And as in the internet she whirls,
She sees the surly pillage hurled,
And the wed oaks of driven earls
Passed to cloud from NottAlott.
Sometimes a ship of damsels glad,
An abbot on an ambling lad,
Sometimes a curly shepherd ‘s bad,
Or long-hair’d rage in crimson bled,
Goes by to tower’d Cameuplot:
And sometimes thro’ the mirror blue
The night comes guiding two by two:
She hath no cool old knight it’s true,
The Bath of old Shalott.
But in her web she still delights
Sees the mirror’s magic bytes,
For often thro’ the silent fights
A funeral plumed with traffic lights
And loose it came to Blamelot:
Or when the moon was overheard
Came two young lovers lately wired;
‘I am half sick of shadows,red
The Lady lost her Plot
