NaPoWriMo 2017, Day 24: Marginalia from Medieval Manuscripts


Warrior Snail


You think a snail can’t fight,
but that’s a very limited
point of view.

Some of us are quite handy
with a rapier or a cudgel
made of dew.



Today’s prompt at was to write a poem inspired by marginal artwork on medieval manuscripts. I was particularly taken with these battle snails.
