    Miss Shakespeare is that what thy shall refer thee to? :)

    Love story, well told in poetic verse. Very good indeed and an enjoyable read..

    'And there were tales, of the Knight and the Cook
    They’ll gladly come to life from Chaucer’s book
    Of the Miller, Summoner and the Friar
    Of valour, charity, humour and fire'

    love this verse :)

    This is superb, Mel, and shows a real knowledge of literature.
    As for me, I could hardly help but like it, being a fan of all things 'old English'. I have read the Canterbury Tales, all of Austin's work and most of Shakespeare's; this does them all proud.

    Take care,

    Ben

    This was a VERY pleasant read! It's like something out of a book and the novel references in there make it all the more interesting. The imagery is good and the character is quite lovable. It starts by telling you it's a dream, but by the time you're mid-way through, you forget that as you're taken on this journey. You're then reminded of it being a dream again. You've played that quite well, whether intentional or not, being that we humans like to make the ideal a reality and vise versa. That stuck out to me quite a bit and I think it worked well.

    Very nicely written Mel :)

    Oh my! What a wonderful piece!! The poem brought out images vividly before my eyes, it gave a feel as if I'm in England. Usage of old words like doth and hath suits the purpose. Fantabulous.

    An absolutely beautiful poem. The use of tradition English lifts this already spell-bounding piece even higher. The use of the English language is wonderful, as you stretch the vocabulary, within a beautifully seamless flow. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and am adding it to my favourites.

    One tiny thing, though. It is actually Stratford-Upon-Avon. Not that that effects the beauty of this piece.

    Great job. Well done.

    A milestone marked with a dreamy tribute to some of England's treasures.

    It looks like you've written each line with 10 syllables. This is a challenge in itself. When reading this I could help struggle with the flow. Were you trying to write this in iambic pentameter?

    Despite the flow, the poem is full of imagery and made for a good read. Sherlock smoking a cigar did make me laugh too. I imagined you awoke out of his cloud of smoke.

    Well done. ((Hugs)) x
