Warrior Knight

  As the storm raged outside
The  warrior knight on his trusty steed did ride
 Headed to the village nearby
To rescue a damsel who was scheduled to die

  The lass with the blue ribbon in her hair
 was to be fed to the dragon
   And she cried a river of tears
Praying for someone to save her from the fiery one

The trusty steed was swift and strong
   And they reached the village before long
Ready to battle the dreaded dragon
   The beast that  breathed fire would soon come along

   Then the fiery beast appeared
And people scattered in fear
   But the brave knight was well  prepared
And  into the dragon's heart he plunged his spear

The dragons blood flew everywhere
    And the villagers began to cheer
 the lass with the blue  ribbon in her hair 
     shed no more tears
   As  the warrior knight had persevered

For the Medaeval contest

    I am positively charmed by this medieval legend. Your verse two is so perfect, so medieval, so pitiful. I don't think anyone could not be affected by it. Then a smooth transition to a happy ending. Blue ribbons to you, sir.

    Very descriptive with great medaeval images. Love the image of the lass with the blue ribbon in her hair.

    yes, Joseph that actually occurred to me to call my words nerds, but birds seemed more poetic. heehee. That was sure a dopey poem I did!!! I think if it gets placed , it will only be because hardly anyone is entering her contest with "funny" poems.
