Take a Poet to Lunch!

It's true! It's National Poetry Month! Here, something to help you celebrate, and so much better than that lousy CGI movie.

Hee-hee-hee... Princess Wideload... *snort*

I had to look that up, Bob. His wife's name was Hygd. Bet that makes a comeback as a girl's name, it's so much more euphonic than "Madison".

Don't tell anyone, Mark, but I've used "Wideload" before. Originally she was a Valkyrie. Maybe that'll make a comeback as a girl's name, too.

I was always smitten in my own arm-dangling way by all the names in Beowulf---Hygd is a good one too. I didn't remember that one.

I wonder if instead of "mall" names they had "Geat" names.
