5.0 out of 5 stars Great writing - A great story, 26 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Six Wives Of Henry VIII (Paperback)
Alison Weir does us all regale With another thrilling historic tale I really did enjoy this book And so I recommend you take a look King Henry had him wives galore But the story contains so much more When Arthur died his reign begun He being the eldest living son Henry was a strapping lad And was left a million by his dad Wolsey was left to run the Court While Harry lad indulged in sport Arthur had not done the deed So by all it was agreed That Katherine a maiden did remain And England required a friend in Spain So Henry's wife number one Was virtuous Katherine of Arragon For an heir the king he strived And save for Mary none survived A lack of sons hurt Henry's pride A curse that came with Arthur's bride? He pressed his wife to admit her sin But she alas would not give in So many cardinals he employed To make his marriage null and void Then angered by Rome's prevarication He became the head of church and nation The church of England would begin With his marriage to Anne Boleyn She gave birth to good queen Bess But females then were valued less Again the boys did not survive And so old Cromwell did connive Charged with treason she screamed with shock And then they led her to the block As English justice ran its course Henry fell down from his horse From that day the king was lame And his life was not quite the same Jane Seymour was pale and fair And she gave the king a son and heir Jane had proved her wifely worth But she did die right after the birth About the looks of Anne of Cleves It seems that Hobein's art deceives Anne was welcomed by the nation But the king refused the consummation He said with her desire was dulled And quickly had the tie annulled Katherine Howard was just fifteen When fat old Harry made her his queen But the happy union was not to last As she was caught up by her past Youthful romps upon her bed Did cost this little girl her head Six there were but five so far So we come to Katherine Parr A widowed woman of great respect Was blessed with powerful intellect But her diverting thought and clever mind Led to danger she did find Aware of some dark conspiracy She found it wiser to agree Henry's health was fading fast And Katherine Parr was the last Cue applause and raise a cheer Another cracker from Alison Weir
