"Champagne with foaming whirls
As white as Cleopatra's melted pearls."
~ Lord Byron
"Champagne with a fluffy white tail,
Off for the Shimmering Sea, we sail ..."
"O, which way the Mummies,
How about some caviar other yummies ~ ?"

"When we come to The Poole of Tears,
I'll give you a scratch behind the ears.
If in horse latitudes, we linger or flounder,
I'll Huff & I'll Puff. I'll call for Puffin Prancer.
If in The Isle of Galapagos we find ourselves feeble,
I'll summon a very wise Beagle,
To tell us a Fable and join us at table."
~ Master Minor Byrd

"If Twittering I hear weeping, bravely
I'll swim The Poole of Tears, out of my grave,
Paddling wildly; I'll banish my fears.
Her part in me I could not keep from death,
I'll paddle madly, long after I'm out of breath.
Though peril to my modesty, not death on't;
Champagne I'll swim with foaming whirls ~
Madcap perils, Baroque as Cleopatra's pearls,
My Tale I'll tell, if Dutch wags join us, Dogonit ~ !"

Please rotate. I sincerely hope you are swelled.

Of Courtly Love * ~
* Attraction to the lady, usually via eyes/glance
* Worship of the lady from afar
* Declaration of passionate devotion
* Virtuous rejection by the lady
[Yes, you've done that]
* Renewed wooing with oaths of virtue and eternal fealty
* Moans of approaching death from unsatisfied desire (and other
physical manifestations of lovesickness)
* Heroic deeds of valor which win the lady's heart
[Good enough yet ~ ?]
* Consummation of the secret love
* Endless adventures and subterfuges avoiding detection
* Adapted from Barbara Tuchman.
