I am creating a joke card for my niece and her film director husband. The content says:
"Ah, my Darling, my Drama, bespeaketh my deepest heart this day."
"Oh, Truest, I shall, I shall. So, tellest me--what thou thinkest of my shoes?"
(You need to see the pic to get the joke.)
Here, though, I'm curious about the prepositions. It seems to me if he says, "bespeakest of my heart," or he says, "bespeaketh my heart," he is saying two different things and I can choose.
I am also curious about the "of my shoes" preposition. It seems to me that, grammatically-speaking, we can't do without the "of", but its presence changes the tone and rhythm of the line.
