“One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar” – Helen Keller or “Eleanor – Queen”

By Elvira

She                              soared                         on her
death bed

Back to                                                            Aquitaine
Mother of                                kings
Scoundrels
Murders of kin
Now                             resting                         in French
Land
No one                                     can hurt her;
no king, but God
commands her

Freedom,                                 but a page
on a book
Eleanor                                    we honor
you.
