Once, you crowned kings, queens,
and champions; along with
them you decay now.

I had a feeling someone might need to Google it. XD I won't judge. Thank you. I'm very flattered.

I will admit, I did have to use Google for this one. But once I understood the message sent to us here, I felt a sudden chill disperse down my spine and my arms. This truly is a delicate, wonderful, and mentally-stimulating piece of work that deserves to be recognized.

Yeah, I had a feeling not everyone would understand this poem. I'm so happy you did. And that you got the feeling of it. The emotion of it. Thank you.

It´s brillant but it also takes on a kind of sad feeling---like laurel is something of the past, something else forgotten and hidden in history. I mean, some readers may have to Google it to understand what a laurel is. But you brought it back to our attention. 5/5
