"All words have not a single meaning but a swarm of them, like bees around a hive. And like that swarm, changing its position ever-so-slightly with each wingbeat, the word's meanings change a little with each use upon the tongue or the page." -- Maureen O'Brien

I can sell wall hanging of Renaissance poetry (I suppose prose would be ok, too) at a Renfaire. The problem is that I don't know much of anything about Renaissance poetry. Any recommendations for reasonably short pieces for a general audience?

At this point, all I've got in mind is "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here" (suitable for office doors) and the witches' recipe from Macbeth.

I was considering My Cat Jeoffry, but 1762 is probably too recent.
