William Morris

Rondel

Behold the works of William Morris,
   Epics, and here and there wall-papery,
   Mild, mooney, melancholy vapoury
A sort of Chaucer minus Horace.

Spun out like those of William Loris,
   Who wrote of amorous red-tapery,
Behold the works of William Morris,
   Epics, and here and there wall-papery!

Long ladies, knights, and earls and choris-
   ters in the most appropriate drapery,
   Samite and silk and spotless napery,
Sunflowers and apple blossoms and orris,
Behold the works of William Morris!
