Silver Fleurs-de-Lis

January 31, 2012 § Leave a comment

We marched for twelve miles underneath a canopy

Made from two huge violet velvet ballgowns with lacy ruffs,

Embroidered with silver fleurs-de-lis.

We were utterly confident that our impossible promise

Would be forgotten, since no one seemed able

To master The Remembering Challenge.
