The Limbourgs

welcomed by a steward

from the cold.

Opaque sky-

the wife warms her knees,

sheep now penned.

Lusignan…

Melusine-haunted.

Oxen plough.

Damosel,

you will ever be

Dourdain’s jewel.

Royal rider,

you meet The May Queen

from Riom.

St Chapelle:

in your shade fair maids

haymaking.

Scythe the corn

while Poitiers enjoys

a rare peace.

At Etampes,

lady falconers

take control.

At Saumur,

a peasant’s backside

mid-vendange.

Old Louvre,

your fields protected

from the birds.

A swineherd

shakes acorns after

the Duke’s death.

Vincennes’ keep,

where hounds savage boar:

Duke’s birthplace.
