Unfortunately, not many have survived and some verses are incomplete. There's "Wulf and Eadwacer", a poem about a woman whose lover is an outlaw and Eadwacer, her tyrant husband. "The Wife's Complaint" is the tale of another who is banished from the community to live in a cave, once her husband has gone, and she recalls the happy times they spent together. There's the poem too about the message a husband sent to his wife with a signal for her to join him in exile.
"Beowulf", my favourite, is set in the 5th and 6th centuries on the North sea coast of England. He's a dragon slayer. The manuscript of the poem is dated around 1010AD, but the story could easily have been told and retold in the mead hall long before written words became common place.
I've almost finished writing a poem about Stonehenge and I'm still working on my novel, the Monk's tale.
I hope that all of your projects are going well and that like me you are looking forward to writing more. Also, the arrival of Spring and it's warmer days.
Have a great week, Google+ Friends!
