Poem -


The year is 1492 
i live in the middle ages 
I am poet wondering though
europe by horse back
in the dark ages looking
for adventure and romance
i came to the city florence
wondering though this 
beautiful city i was walking
along the river when i saw 
a beautiful lady painting 
i stop and said very nice 
painting may i ask your name
she said Julie she said what is
your name i said i am the poet Mark 
so we talked for hours and days 
and we full in love!!! and on the river
one night with the moon full we made 
love i found the romance i was looking for
then i hear of the  adventure of a life time
christopher columbus may sail to the new world
to un know places i thought what wonderful
thing i like to do Julie say no i will never see
you agin i said yes you will THEN!!!
the black death came with lots people dieing
and then my beautifull Julie became ill 
with the black death and in 3 days she died 
My heart was broken i cryed for days
and then i now have the black death 
and i lay in bad and may die any day

and the story ends the poet dies
and goes to heaven and meets up
with Julie and they live happy ever
after the end!!!

Hi Greg. I love medieval tales and I bet you were influenced a bit by watching "Medici" on Netflix a bit...lol.  What a sad story. I do like that the lovers die, they meet again in the afterlife to pick up their love. The black plague was a horrible time during the Renaissance and killed 50 million people which was 60% of the population...How horrible that must have been.  Who would have thought that fleas on rats could have such a massive death effect. Poor medieval poet, Mark. Poets back then were revered. I wish they were today...lol. xo Love n Hugs
