> For bardic exercise #3, write four lines of iambic pentameter. The
> subject should be an "unattainable", such as your Queen, a knight, or
> church figure. It should be expressed in terms of courtly love.
> of their beauty, their grace, their wondrous physical attributes...
> whatever. It doesn't have to outright declare your undying love, but
> should at least hint at the potential inclination. Your current
> significant other is not allowed.
> Remember that this is for fun, and that we play at the Middle Ages
> here. Don't take any of the answers posted here as serious love
