This month, we have quite a treat in store. Ladies, 
gentlemen and gentle-others of the Bujoldian 
Multi-verse Society have penned poems in honor 
of October’s birthdays. Now, these folks are strictly 
amateurs, and don’t mind a little illogic or the odd 
meter in their works, so don’t expect Shakespeare. 
He was booked this month. Yes, for the whole month. 


What they lack in polish, they’ll make up with enthusiasm. 
First up, for Kris Wiegand’s birthday today on Oct. 1, we 
have Provincara-to-be Anna Maria with a four-stanza 
Darthacan Sestina. What we lack in stanzas, we make up 
with enthusiasm. (Yes, this is one of the catchphrases for 
the month.) Wonderful wishes for a happy day, Kris! Without 
further ado: 


In Darthaca, the land of love’s own tongue,

A maiden fair awaited true love’s kiss.

For Daughter’s sake, she’d accept no less.

No silly fumblings of the village boys, 

No practice rounds behind the hedge.

She vowed her first would be her best.
