Book Poem

The Quest

Diego and Dora's Animal Adventure like
Five Quarters of The Orange,
began in A Year of Fog.  
It was Misery in 
A Thousand Acres strewn with
Les Fleurs du Mal.  They thought it would be
Per Sempre but the sight of
Brunelleschi's Dome impelled them to 
cross the County Line
where they found the Key of Light.

In response to Janet Reid's contest to write a poem with books, the above is what came about.  I had to put in Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal.  So awesome to read it in French.
