A Rondeau for Gulf Wars

As I was heralding at Val Day this past weekend, I realized that while I’d written boasts for everyone processing in, I didn’t have any thing to say while TRM, TRH, etc, were processing out.  I’d just taken a class on Formes Fixe that morning with Mistress Kasha, so I whipped out the class materials, and wrote this rondeau while standing behind the thrones.

To south the Gulf Wars road does lead,
The armies of the Mid grow strong,
And Edmund rides His battle steed
To south the Gulf Wars road does lead,
A growing appetite to feed
Amidst the dragon war band throng
To south the Gulf Wars road does lead,
The armies of the Mid grow strong!

I also wrote this rondeau for Her Majesty during court because She asked me to.  (I set myself up for it, but there you are.)  I made up a little tune, that of course I will never remember, but I definitely sang it for her.

I love the color of a leek
It is so bright and shiny green
And when I chew them they go squeak
I love the color of a leek
In stew or soup my hunger piqued
(This song requested by the Queen)
I love the color of a leek
It is so bright and shiny green.
