Elizabeth and Anne – Jessica Dunne [Poem]

Todays post is Jessicas second piece, if you haven’t read her previous submission, click here! I think this fitting for the second piece, seeing as how the first was the beginning of the Tudor reign, and this, the end.

A word from the author,

The [poem] was written in May in the run up to Anne Boleyn’s execution anniversary. She was a woman with such an important historical significance and such a tragic end I had to write this. I always felt for Elizabeth and her older sister Mary as well actually. I’m a child of divorce so I can relate to them both.

Elizabeth and Anne

On that day

The 19th of May 1536

Death gave Anne his cold kiss

The executioner swung

And her life ended.

But her legacy went on.

For 20 years is not that long.

When Elizabeth sang the final Tudor song.

And on the 24th of March 1603

Death kissed a Boleyn once more

And ended a Dynasty

I'm a lover of all things Tudor, and historical - fiction or fact. My aim is to bring together writers of all calibers to share their work with like minded people!

One thought on “Elizabeth and Anne – Jessica Dunne [Poem]

  1. It’s good to see a second poem from you, Jessica, this time concentrating on the Boleyn history. Although Anne was executed at such a young age, I am sure she would have been proud to know that her daughter was not only crowned queen but also became one of this country’s longest reigning monarchs.
