RESTORATION: A POEM

An ode to Charles the Second

One to restore order

One to lend wings to art

One to drive it harder

One who first, the muse, sought

After the dreadful age

Of sombre, dull pestilence

And tyranny, to turn over the page

To combine beauty with good sense

He wore the golden jewel once more

After the pitiable fate of his nation and father

And literature, with new spirit, began to soar

To discover it’s path further

Twas with you, His word was glorified

In that wondrous battle

To reveal truth in the face of all who’d lied

And the hypocrites, startle

The Age of Restoration

O regal King, how much we owe thee

To you, give praise and adoration

Let art forevermore flourish and blessed be

I love your classical style of poetry writing, and I've always wondered what it would be like to be a noble King, and to one day have my very own court.

Wow nicely written and the type of character you've portrayed here within your words is pretty awesome to.

Voted up and out, and thanks for the awesome convo we had earlier. You are cool!
