swive
"Swive" is an archaic English verb for copulation. It can be used either transitively (as in "She swived him") or intransitively (as in "They swived."), and it was commonly used in Middle English--notably in the fourteenth-century poetry of Chaucer. Since modern English has not one single decent transitive verb to denote an act that is absolutely essential for the propagation of the human race, I believe that "swive" should be revived--and I make my case for it in the sonnet below. Kindly note that with the possible exception of "swive" itself, this poem contains not one indecent word.
