Playing with words

I came across this when I was looking for book making of material last week and I loved it.
Sometimes we forget how much the writers that came before us played with words and conventions, how much they broke the ground that we now tread. This poem from the 17th century is a wonderful example. Rather than write all about it, I'm going to let this video do my job for me :)

I saw a peacock with a fiery tail.

You don't need to be able to read the book, the poem is read aloud.
