Kathew,ow often does love win out?Very appropo. Nice magpie, and so quickly too. I'm envious. ;)rel
Ah well, I don't think he thought of it as 'merely.' All the same, an interesting ramble through the contrasts in their lives.
I was very young but I remember the drama. I think the country got a better king in the end.
This time in history was certainly an interesting one with all of the personal drama .... very well written Magpie!
Helen- wasn't it a fascinating time. I remember well all the dinner time discussions when King George VI died and young Elizabeth became Queen.
Rinkly Rimes- absolutely!!!
Aoife.Troxel- I agree with you, but I think others thought "merely"....but that was then and aren't things different now!
I suppose it will always be a bit of a mystery as to who really got the better deal.
Choices. I love personal dramas!
I like it. I wanted to work that angle myself, but it just didn't come forth. Good job!
Apsolutely love this one!! :-)
You delineate the differences well. Too bad the older King George could not be recognized for his talents rather than outworn presuppositions.
Excellent take on the prompt. 'merely' is such a tiny word for the magnitude of what took place - I love the way it enhances the story to the nth!
Hi Kathew, thank you for your visit. I like your take on this prompt. I researched and enjoyed the story since It was a long time ago I learned it. Great job.QMM
You wrapped up the history in one delightful little piece. Nice.
Great little piece! This was mostly the royal attitude towards it. I'd give up everything (apart from my guitar) for love......
And that's that..short and sweet!!
Great Magpie! :)
oh so very nice and pointed...an interesting contrast that...great magpie!
five lines,tons of fun...you did it very wisely and effectively.
Ah, the choices of kings, they changed the course of the royalty's history.
Ouch! ha ha.
You made me smile as cut to the chase with this one.
Nicely done, Kathew.
I think getting a wife is a pretty good deal!!! Of course, I am still a romantic, even at 65!
I love this little poem -- such a concise summary with a fun little lilt. Well done!
You have summed the situation very well. I wonder if just getting a wife was enough for the man who otherwise would have been King?
so true---Edward acknowledged his brother's family in his parting speech--you explore his deciusion on many levels in so few words--great magpie!
