My heart is often captured by thy grace,
Thy gentle wit does oft my heart beguile.
My joy is boundless when, with smiling face,
You sit with me and sing a song a while.

> For bardic exercise #3, write four lines of iambic pentameter.  The
> subject should be an "unattainable", such as your Queen, a knight, or a
> church figure.  It should be expressed in terms of courtly love.  Talk
> of their beauty, their grace, their wondrous physical attributes...
> whatever.  It doesn't have to outright declare your undying love, but it
> 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
> letters.
