Bayeux tapestry

Did you laugh, ladies, While stitching at your warriors (So elegantly stylized) And wonder how they'd fought? Did your wimples waggle As you tittered, heads together, Discovering quaint likenesses To gentlemen at court?

And perhaps you had your favorites - Fell for them a little bit - Oh did you laugh, my ladies, At the funny men you sewed?
