Not very Miltonic at all! I don't recall any reference in the
poems to this sadly-neglected fete.
The fete in question is Twelfth Night (strictly speaking a
Twelfth Day), and I'm having a "supper and merriment." On the
invitation I included a bit of doggerel by Herrick called
"Twelfth Night: Or, King and Queen." This came up in a Google
search and is in Illuminarium. The good parson must have been
buzzed when he wrote this, or perhaps the artistry is in making
it deliberately bad in keeping with traditions of jokes and tricks.
But it would make a good song. Do any of you know whether it has
been a song, and if so is any music extant? Sorry to ask, but I
have no easy way to find this out.
Thanks in advance, and wes hael!
