Not a whole lot to say, is there? Excellent, mesmerising, as usual. A few forced places, but a re-read set them right.

Wow, so beautiful! Loved the rhythm of it all. Definitely a spiritual place to strive for. Great work!
Awesome! I love the title, the medieval theme, the flow, the message. Everything.

I have to applaud! A wonderful poem and well crafted.

You always manage to have such great lines, like:
"I cannot see my Master's face
With vision dim and blurred,
Or sing my praises to His name
With lyrics thick and slurred."

"How intrishting," replied the king,
This poem wasn't as clear and focused as your usual ones, and I think that's because you have two settings - one in the banqueting hall, and one in the scullery. It may have been more focused if you had started with the king finding the scullery maid and then contrasted his thoughts with hers.
Great job again, I always enjoy your poetic stories.

Loved it! I tried to be Kenn-ish in my little poem this week, but after reading this wonderful story, I'm going to go crawl under a rock. You're just so good!
Congratulations, Kenn! I too, felt inspired to "try" a somewhat Kenn-styled bit of poetry this week...You are inspiring, even if rather hopeless to beat!

I wish that I could write poetry like that. The minute I read it, I knew it was your entry. There is something distinctive in your style. I could see everything that the characters saw in my mind's eye. You have an extroadinary gift, Kenn. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Kenn, writing works as AWEsome as this really pushes the bar high. I should through in my towel now. But I won't! Your are an inspiration & a true Master of Poety. May the Lord keep guiding your pen as you right for the glory of HIM!

Congratulations!

This was brilliantly done. I had just a couple of meter problems, but I'm reading it at 545am, so what does that tell you??? I don't often leave comments, but I'm proud of you. Great job.
