With eloquent words does the poet call to mind the glory of Our Kingdom. In meter and rhyme are his talents professed. So with words We (Sovereign's name) and (Consort's name), Sovereign and Consort of Meridies, do recognize Our subject (Recipient's name) as Poet-Laureate of Meridies for the duration of Our Reign, and charge [him/her] thus, to leave in words Our true beliefs, Our wisdom and concerns, and return again to paper to see what we have learned. To speak of truth and honor and to never let the pen be stilled, to never let your voice be silent until the words of Our hearts have been spoken. Done this (number) day of (month) Anno Societatis (Society year), being (year) Gregorian.
-To be signed by Sovereign and Consort, with space for their seals.
