The Lyrics

John Keats wrote his well-known romantic poem "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" in 1819. A recently discovered crumpled napkin bore the date 1818 and the present version of Keats' oeuvre. Quite recently, it was realized that either version of the poem could be sung to a tune by the Eagles.
(A Saga of Escape to Sarasota Bay from the Lake Erie Shoreline)

O what can ail thee, pale Canuck,
Gulf-coast and condo visiting,
Where the seagrass thrives along the Bay,
And Snowbirds sing ?

O what can ail thee, pale Canuck,
Jet-charter'd, shov'ling sore ?
The pompano is on the grill, fresh-
-Squozen juice U-pour.

I watched an ibis in the reeds,
Anguish'd "Need I ne'er go North?'
When rang a lady-elf with her
Clipboard and Porsche.

She drove me in her pager'd steed,
Past time-shar'd marsh, herons soar;
And there I fill'd her travel-mug
With Starbucks' pour.

We tour'd beachfront, boat-access too,
Benz'd realtors, well-bronz'd were they all,
They chirp'd, 'La Belle Plage sans Jetski -
Just behind the Mall.'

She drove me to Siesta Key.
En route I daydream'd, drawbridge high'd,
November's permanent escape
From the froze Lake-side.

(A capella)
And that is why few winter there,
Valve-closed or Erie-watering,
Though the sludge is filtered from the Lake
And no bugs sting.

Full disclosure: not super educated here, so never heard of the Keats poem. I read it on your site, though. Definitely like rhyming poetry better than the other kind; it was good. AND I'm familiar with the Eagles song. So I found your version very very clever. Good story, too -- well done.

Don't know the Eagles song, but can quote most of the poem from memory :-) I enjoyed this probably more than I should, there's some excellent subs. Super stuff :-D
