    so I stay silent and live within this world of scarlet wine
    PETRARCHAN SONNET
    For you, I mean not to impose
    for my wasteful impression and unworthy heart
    and oh god my sweetheart,
    on my vanity still sits the first rose
    like the sun you arose
    and like the night I watched you depart
    from how far we've come apart
    you've left me alone with my shadows
    the night has become my limelight
    our joyrides became fights on the roadside

    a glassy lake reflected in your eyes
    menacing and inviting, murky and dark
    a decievingdeceiving and brilliant
    where no one could see your lies white and stark
    my heart resists your condescending tones
    beating bright and harsh as a blood red
    my soul shines combatant and blue as moonstone
    your intentions as cruel words hurt even when unsaid
    they say you're sweet, kind, and purely divine
    so I stay silent and live within this world of scarlet wine

    Dear Una,
    I

    I
    must leave
    ...
    my return. I will follow the wind, away from you and your sinful ways.
    Your actions have consequences, and I will not be wrapped up when your sins unravel further. I do not wish harm upon you,
    and I pray your travels be safe and you perhaps will understand your wrongdoings. My departure is not aligned with my heart,
    for my heart is foolish and dreams of you as you were. Goodbye, my vixen.

    to the sudden embrace of your arms
    SHAKESPEAREAN SONNET
    Failure considered a stepping stone,
    as natural as the rising of the moon
    and how can I ask you to atone
    with your hands so deeply maroon
    a glassy lake reflected in your eyes
    menacing and inviting, murky and dark
    a decieving and brilliant guise
    where no one could see your lies white and stark

    Unit 5: The Pilgrims
    1.) On your personal wiki page, discuss the way Chaucer described his pilgrims (positive? negative? what does he like/admire? not like/admire?);
    ...
    he did.
    2) Rank ALL of the pilgrims from the General Prologue in your morality scale on Padlet;
    ...
    post :)
    3) Decide on a location for your personal pilgrimage and discuss why.
    My personal pilgrimage would have to be to Ireland, since my grandfather moved here with my grandmother (who was born/lived in Sweden) from Ireland when they were still young, and apparently we own land in Arklow/Wicklow. I remember listening to them speak in both Swedish and Irish slangs growing up and I myself feel very connected to those areas and their history. My tattoo on my wrist is of a Celtic Triskele. My grandfather used to teach me about the history of Ireland and about the holy Trinity and all that which is an adoption of the Triskele. Anyway, I've always seen it as a sort of religious symbol to myself and it much is like a more permanent dedication of I suppose Sir Gawain's Mother Mary painting. It reminds him to keep his head straight, and to remember where his faith lies. My pilgrimage would be to go to the land my family has had in their name for over centuries, and be able to plant my connection with my religious reminding with that distant part of me.

    SPENSER SONNET
    Dust and ash carried through the wind
    lighting dimmed and spirits hung low
    I knew not yet of how you'd sinned
    I hadn't heard, not from any bird of song or ebony crow
    the way you asked, my hand you'd wished to borrow,
    tossing aside your half-smoked cigarette
    just as we'd reached the quiet meadow
    the words I meant to speak kindly came out more like a threat
    and our breath danced in the air with our voices in a duet
    breaking, falling, and reaching above
    like a melody captured in one of your casettes
    I so strangely fell for you deeper, a brighter love
    and I gave no alarm
    to the sudden embrace of your arms
