Long Works of Anagramming:
Anthem For Doomed Youth
by Wilfred Owen
Anthem For Doomed Youth
What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?
Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle
Can patter out their hasty orisons.
No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells;
Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,
The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
And bugles calling for them from sad shires.
What candles may be held to speed them all?
Not in the hands of boys, but in their eyes
Shall shine the holy glimmers of good-byes.
The pallor of girls' brows shall be their pall;
Their flowers the tenderness of patient minds,
And each slow dusk a drawing-down of blinds.
= Hymn: The Fight for Martyrdom
What pealing tolls for those condemned as bulls?
Is most hellishly angry gunshot.
Resonating trench gunfire's deathly prattle
Detonates non-melodious laments.
Why no hopes go forth, no lilting orisons?
Pay no vocal remorse bar these, the choristers,
Their mad trilled echoes of howlin' salvoes;
Trumpets blow in distress on far-off hillocks.
What tapers can be held to hasten all the slain?
Held not by brash youths, but in these orbits
How flicker shimmering god images of adieus.
Her pale forehead'll be terror's able friend;
Why, floral softness seen as patience,
Night, where mild days, wound down, end.

The Curse of the Ring (from The Lord of the Rings)

And in the darkness, bind them.

The Marriage of True Minds
by William Shakespeare
Let not the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no, it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken.
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
= Oh Damn! Must I Refrigerate?
by Leslie Marie Kapshaw
I, altogether a formed instrument,
Despite slim motivation, mend love
In what we'd call a fitter Shinto shrine;
Where vermin rot, betroth some dove.
A fork (an extreme division
Soon eventless in the dark paths) makes not
That street biker advisory warning
So. I laugh when he knows what the non-bikers thought.
