Kings of that land always say to boys,
That tranquility is all, not war, that brings joy;
Such a point is unfamiliar to a child known as Link,
Who thinks that doom constantly doth shrink.

Obviously, as you know: that kingdom is sound,
Dissimilar to Koridai, which horror doth surround;
Harkinian did insist that his boy go and assist,
To go forth and fight Ganon - fist to fist.

Voyaging across Goronu, and in a shop, Morshu says,
"Lamp oil? Bombs? You want it?" - Link nays;
Such unavailing tools do no good for a saviour,
For much vigor was within him, with origins in Scandinavia.

Two months on, Link had found his goal,
That lair, in which Ganon doth stay - 'twas black as coal;
Our saviour, with a magic book, and Ganon said with a gurn:
"Nooo! Not into that pit! It BURNS!!"

On coming back again to Harkinian's court,
Gwonam was in, sporting an awful big wart;
This man did toast his victory, 'twas a glorious hit,
For this wizard had known it - as it was writ.

Onboard his magic rug, flying through yon sky,
Birds did chirp happily, with all sounds on high;
Link was joyfully having so much fun,
Proudly shouting with a grin, "I won!"
This poem is lipogrammatic, which means that it never uses a certain letter: in this case, the letter E. Check if you like. :D

wow, that's amazing,
I can't imagine how hard it must've been,
(like esperanto without Os... *thinking about it*)

how did you manage to loose al the "the"s?

Neko244 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2010
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. :)

I just replaced all the "the"s by using determiners instead ("that", "this", etc). It doesn't flow as nicely, but it's necessary. :D

However, my poem is minor compared to many great lipogrammatic pieces done. See teh awesum Wikipedia article about it for way better ones than mine (:lol:): [link]

And Esperanto without Os? Oh geez. It makes my brain hurt. :dead:

Yeah, I kinda guessed,
but still it's enjoyable without the e

and indeed especially the japanese lipogram with the disapearing syllables,
I can't Imagine how that must be like,

but I think Esperanto without O's must be possible,
if you use only adjectives as nouns,
I'll think about it...
maybe even for the contest!
(which I am so excited about!)
