Goblin Market
BY CHRISTINA ROSSETTI


Morning and evening
Maids heard the goblins cry:
“Come buy our orchard fruits,
Come buy, come buy:
Apples and quinces,
Lemons and oranges,
Plump unpeck’d cherries,
Melons and raspberries,
Bloom-down-cheek’d peaches,
Swart-headed mulberries,
Wild free-born cranberries,
Crab-apples, dewberries,
Pine-apples, blackberries,
Apricots, strawberries;—
All ripe together
In summer weather,—
Morns that pass by,
Fair eves that fly;
Come buy, come buy:
Our grapes fresh from the vine,
Pomegranates full and fine,
Dates and sharp bullaces,
Rare pears and greengages,
Damsons and bilberries,
Taste them and try:
Currants and gooseberries,
Bright-fire-like barberries,
Figs to fill your mouth,
Citrons from the South,
Sweet to tongue and sound to eye;
Come buy, come buy.”

I knew Balmoral but looked it up anyway. The others... wasn't up on those. Feoffer made me squee when fief was mentioned in connection and why wasn't fife thrown in for good measure?
Did pretty well and other than my favorite feoffer, discounting Balmoral which I got correct, those others are Greek proper names *sniffs*.


Feoffer- the person who grants a feoffment.
I really was tempted to think peppermint when feoffment was mentioned here.*grins*

A teacher is doing a poetry symposium in the 1950s style. Students found and memorized their choices and must present them to the audience with it's tables and tea lights. This poem was asked for today (obviously a late starting student as it's to be presented today. *sighs*)
