Arise Meander

Original image by POTO4D: messed about with by CP

Arise, Meander, son of wedded waters:
Of primal source, Titaness Tethys
And all-encircling stream, the chaotic Oceanus.

Arise Sir Knight, and spread far your name;
Arise in Phrygia, for from Phrygia you came.

And never a straight course did he deign
But endlessly wandered the Carian Plain

      I thank you, Susan.
      I like playing with words, and the word stems from the River Meander in present day Turkey. But I made Meander a knight, cos in chess the knight *meanders* over the board.

    I got the pun. But people who don’t play chess may not.

    I like it Crispina 🙂 Unfortunately I’m not familiar with the references. You on the other hand are well rounded enough in your studies to pen this prose and I will learn from it. 😊🌼
