National Poetry Month: “The Plan of St. Gall”

I’ve got that red ink

I’ve got that fresh vellum

I’ve got all the time in the world

to draw this dream.

Charlemagne reigns

and he’s got the vision

we’re restoring the world

like Roma Aeterna.

I have reading, writing, and arithmancy

with which I will create a monastery.

Praise be to God –

Gozbertus, my sweetest son

you will be most impressed.
