The Quest

Whiplash time! Since today is a very important day in the political life of the United States, self spent the better part of the day watching CNN and reading Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

A year has passed since the Green Knight showed up at King Arthur’s court. It is now time for Sir Gawain to receive the (surely) fatal stroke from the Knight. But first, he must find him.

He wanders near to the north of Wales
with the isles of Anglesey off to the left.
He keeps to the coast, fording each course,
crossing at Holy Head and coming ashore
in the wilds of the Wirral, whose wayward people
both God and good men have quite given up on.
And he constantly enquires of those he encounters
if they know, or not, in this neck of the woods,
of a great green man or a Green Chapel.
