Shall Thee Expel Mercy?

by Poet on the Piano   Sep 8, 2009

O' Goddess of Jealousy,
must thee so heartily bequeath
thine eyes of flaming ice and frigid fire?

O' Mentor of Shadows,
must thee so cunningly seek
envy midst the aging wandering spirits?

O' Daughter of Thunder,
must thee so lustfully demand
extinction amongst all of thy fere's?

O' Creator of Wind,
must thee so forcefully strike
kindhearted judgement with thy mayhem?

O' Goddess of Jealousy,
release from thy wilting victims
the inclination to act resentfully.

    Very well done. I do agree with some of the other comments. Your use of some of the "Worde of Olde," is enjoyable. "Pray tell, your visions of wonderment, and lightment, do agree with jovial constitution, m'Lady." I admire your talent.

    This is good, but thine and thee and thou is really hackneyed and overdone, and old fashioned, and you don't always use them correctly - No one writes poetry like this anymore.

    That was beautiful! And the win is well deserved.
    I love the Old English style; I do it myself. I have one suggestion.
    Shouldn't your title be "Shalt Thou Expel Mercy?" It sounds more accurate to me, but then again, just a suggestion :)

    I read this a few times why I didn't comment before I'm not sure. I do that at times get lost in a poem not really knowing what to say.
    But anyway, you have been on my favorite list since I joined. Your poems are beyond simple but complex and enjoyable.
    Congrats on your win, you deserved it a millions times over
