Alden, these are damned good!

*Sonnet 18*

They sit in state on sable-wing?ed thrones,
To serve the Crown and People here amassed.
As once again we gather at the stones,
Full five and twenty years have come and passed.

Such inspiration bears a heavy toll;
The weight of points and pearls upon one?s brow.
So with a heart, pray do their work extol
And honor them by curtsey or a bow.

>From Arenvald and Alix came the line,
And David with fair Chrystal followed suit,
Then Niklas and Kezia were assigned
To lead all in a nobler pursuit.

Now Brian and Fionna guide the way
Into the years that come after today.

*Penned for a Rose*

Fair lady born of noble grace,
With gentle hand and fairest face,
Inspiring all around you,
To rise above their stationed place
And with their words and deeds erase
Their sins for greater virtue.
Such artistry at your command,
Illuminating our dark land,
Is rare indeed, a wonder.
The radiance cast from your hand
So great, Apollo is unmanned;
His chariot cast asunder.
For what you do, these thanks I give,
As better do I strive to live.

Cheers all,
