Teaser Tuesdays {Nov12.2013}

My Teaser :

“I write of merry jest and greenwood shade,
But tales of chivalry are not my trade;
So if you wish to read that five years' story
Of lady-love, romance, and martial glory,—
The mighty feats of arms that Gawayne did,—
The ever ripening love that Gawayne hid
Five long years in his breast, biding his time,—
Go seek it in some abler poet's rime.”

Excerpt From: Charlton Miner Lewis. “Gawayne and the Green Knight.” iBooks. 

This book dates from 1903 and is a translation of a Fourteenth Century book .
