I am looking for a masterful calligrapher to write 27 stanzas in some kind of ornate copperplate that twists in on itself like a snake, and another 500 words in some kind of gothic baroque script like the other sample attached. I also attached one of the illustrations so you have an idea of the style.

Below are two sample stanzas:

My heart bleeds, Iím appalled.
Your lifeís deedís been to crawl
To the tip of the leaf you hatched under last fall.

Yet the well-feathered soar
Farther now than before.
They add wealth to their hoard, meanwhile fettered, we stall.
