My dear friend, Isabella, has written of the excellent time she had at a feast (I have forgotten where she feasted). M'lady took top prize in a poetry contest. Everyone was challenged to make a poem of a list of the most preposterous words. M'lady Isabella has not only a sharp wit but a quick mind and this is the poem she composed.

Enchanted Avocado Dream

In the land of enchantment
Near crustacean shores,
With fevered excitement
The Leonine roars.

With propitious ardor
He readies for the fight,
His body all widen
The tawny of zincite.

No cuisse or armor
His fundament in air,
In the avocado wood
None challenge his stare.

His heart set for battle
But his foes flee to quick,
Serendipity is gone
He cries, "fiddlestick!!"

Isabella Amborgini Poliziana
The 29th day of the month of April in the year of our Lord 2006.
