1096... Princes, Prelats, Monks and More...

BROTHERS
If there ever was such a thing... The Holy Grail representing Eternal Life... But not the Holy Grail at all... "Accidentally found" by Sir William of Willowbee who is a Seeker of Truth, this Ancient Vessel firmly closed by a lid is said to be devastating if forced open. How to open it and what is inside... if anything??? Does Sir William (Guillaume) know... and if so...will he take the secet to his grave...??? The vessel is kept in a marble box with gold ornaments... but what is more... is it standing on... Human hair? Why? The Crusades have indeed begun... and so has the Order of the Temple Knights.. Secretive Brothers and Monks...
GHASTLY BATTLES, WAR... AND A LADY TO ADORE... AND MORE... DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT SHIP SAILS WERE MADE OF... AND USED FOR SEVERAL CENTURIES...? SOMETHING CALLED HEMP... A PLANT. WHAT KIND OF PLANT? THE MARIJUANA PLANT.. WELL KNOWN EVEN BY THE VIKINGS. SURPRISED?
Sir Guillaume (William) of Willowbee... and more...

LADY FAIR

Weepest nay Lady Fair,

Brother Michael art near...

A Monk he tread'est here.

Tears nay for Thee quodest he.

Shrouds of piety,

Nay Faith canst be,

Tis' soul of torment… He,

Monk of saintly possibility,

A Brother art he,

Nat worthy of Thy touch,

High he tower'est much.

On blue harebells many... Oui!

Couleur of Heavens shall'est be,

Fair Lady, a Chevalier for Thee.

Sir Guillaume de Sauleabeille,

Brother Michel dost say...

Of horse, sword, armor bright,

'Tis Knight Thine... shall'est fight.

 

Nay ecstasy 'tis morn agony be,

A Kingdom of Love, giveth Thee.

Prayer art Thou Fair Rose of 'tis garden,

The Fairest Angel... a Pardon...

Sotfastnesse a Promise nay lost'est,

In grave bones Outlaws cost'est,

Ghost for Thou nere dost joust.

Blue Rose… 'Tis impossibility;

Hour of sext Leef Bride to be,

Queen of Dawn art Thou,

Thy Promised... a Norman he,

A Champion for Thee,

Thine, Sir William of Willowbee.

A bit about the mystical Willow which is quite a benificial and valuable tree.

Since ancient times willow brances were not only used to make fishnets, boxes, brooms, baskets, wattle and daub and more from the leaves and bark containing Salicyn... and a precursor of Aspirin... was used as remedy for aches, pains and fever as well.

Even Hippocrates wrote about the willow tree's medical properties in the fifth century BC.  Declared nourishing as well, poor people in medieval days ate the cooked willow catkins they made mash of after honey bees had visited the much cherished nectar and pollen of these early willow flowers.

Indeed even thought mystical, in the days of quite a lot of superstition and misconseptions, willow trees were even believed to uproot and like gnarled ghosts chase unwanted or evil people.

 

Simplifying a bit, this 'Medieval Poem' even so there might be words... Quodest is say... Couleur is color, oui is yes in French, dost is does, micel is much, sootfastnesse is truth, nere is not or never and leef is beloved. Noon prayers were at the 'hour of sext'.

French was much spoken in England at the time. A Norman, the King of England, royalty and aristocracy spoke French, never English... for centuries. The French name Guillaume Sauleabeille, is William Willowbee in English. Ooops! Willowbee is... well, rather interesting and... More...
