Four Queens Find Lancelot Sleeping, Frank Cowper
I fulfilled one of my ambitions today which was to try my hand at archery. I shot a bow and arrow at the Rathmoylyon fair. It was a lovely autumn afternoon and evening. I loved trying to control the strength in my right arm when holding the arrow back. I had three shots for 2 euro and scored 9 out 30. Of course I'd like to try it again. In fact I'd love to own my own bow.
I also got to do some writing this morning and worked on my sonnets. I wrote a new one called The Isle of Apples as I am still interested in Arthurian legend. I want to write another sonnet based on the legends. I had a vision earlier which I hope to convert into poetry later, or during the week about it.
Boyne Berries 8 is being launched in the Castle Arch Hotel in Trim on Thursday night at 8pm. I hope to attend and read my poem The Fall which is being published in it.
