The Literalist

Never planning to deceive,
Nor is he naive nor slow;
Ancient texts have been his lot--
Blind to what he doesn't know.

(I'm growing to like the Awdl Gywydd Welsh verse form.)

I really like this. Has a chant quality.

Thanks jk.
On my list of things to do is to experiment with some of the other Welsh forms. My first foray into Awdl Gywydd was a paraphrase of a Charles Darwin quote over on PhaWRONGula: http://phawrongula.blogspot.com/2005/03/extinction-of-less-improved-form...
