For Eirik Andersen upon being elevated to the Order of the Pelican

November 2014 (AS 49)
By THLaird Colyne Stewart

For Ealdormere Andersen tended
and built and laboured and mended.
From city to town he has flown
and under him all this has grown
like the Pantheon defended.

Through trials and hardship he wended,
any he met were well friended
and all of his works were well sown
For Ealdormere.

Now his knee will be bended
with honour to his name lended;
From Royals favour he’s shown
As he stands before lupine throne.
Now to a Peerage ascended
For Ealdormere.

Written as a rondel (my first attempt).
