ALBERTUS LEONISQUE
by
John Bilsborough

 
In our pub's Open Mike, we've recently had poetry, serious and silly, in English, Italian, French, German, Spanish and, of course, Welsh. Next time, I'm gonna do this one. Classical scholars, look away now. - John Bilsborough

Juxta mare Blackpolensis,
celebrans trans mundis est
celebrantis per ozonis

promenatis promenantis
sed in doldrums omnes sunt.
