The Continuance Of Eleanore.

wpid-wp-1444766747897.jpeg

 

 

An arrangement made /  Far too young

For Eleanore’s hand / a marriage plan

Her Pater made the choice /  secretly agreed

An aged Squire / monies sealed the deed.

With land for a voice. /  Eleanore had no choice,

Wardrobe chose, trunk closed./ Her parents she begged,

A luncheon to seal the deal/ they gave her as a chattel.

Diamonds bought success/ Her heart fluttered like a bird.

Without manners or finesse/ Tore away her innocence

Removed the bridal dress/ her cries no longer heard.

 

 

My second attempt at writing a Cleve, if unsure of what a Cleave is, or if you would like to read part 1 of Eleanore please click the link.

  1. This is great Ellen! Glad you poached me 😉 Interesting take on cleave. I haven’t looked into what a cleave is, but based on what I read I thought it was opposites. I like your take, making it 2 opposing takes on the one event. Off to see your other one…
