So blest art thou by deepest azure that an ocean of wit doth fall from thy 
tongue drop by drop, to make a rainbow of poetic invention that colours thy 
speech most brilliant!  In thee am I blest to find such radiant and facetted 
speech, that each word doth send a sparkling colour forth in explication of 
thy purpose.
'Tis but the blessing of the muse which moves my feet in humble worship of the 
song of life, and I shall in attendance be when Pennsic doth come to pass and 
many such dances are held.  Shouldst thou purpose to do so, 'tis but a simple 
thing to, with a measure of grace, incline my feet to join in such a holy 
task.  Shouldst thou do so, I should measure thee with grace, and grace thee 
with a measure.....'twould be a pleasure, Gentle Lord, as 'twould be in any 
case of such grace and flourish!
