For Marian

If I could I would return to a time of knights and kings
Of castles, dungeons, wizards and mystical magical things
I'd see Little John, Will Scarlett, the merry men and Friar Tuck
I'd stay away from the sheriff, I'd rather not push my luck

Robin was a hunted man, but he beckoned at her calls
For Marian he'd risk everything and climb the castle walls
His loyalty to King Richard made his men and he outlaws
They hid in Sherwood Forest, fighting for the cause

The king was in the Third Crusade unaware of the unrest
To become ruler of all England was the sheriff's quest
Through all this two lovers would light the evening sky
For Marian he lived and for Marian he'd die

A romance for the ages, A love that would never die
A love for all eternity to make the angels sigh
For King Richard his loyalty, for Marian his heart
To save the crown and England, Robin played his part

Richard returned to England to claim his royal crown
Robin triumphed in Nottingham bringing the sheriff down
There was peace and happiness all throughout the land
Robin knelt upon one knee to take his maiden's hand.

Robin Hood and Maid Marian.

    There is a shining knight who wrote this poem.....one who offers daylight to shine upon this long-time Souper's poetry.......re=reading some of the older works that no longer get read, and making this 'weary fair lady' feel worthier than she did before he came along riding his white horse!!! My thanks to you Vince for being one of the few who go back and seek out long lost poems by such as me, myself and I! I am very grateful....and appreciative! Thank you for taking your valuable time for me.

    I love this story Vince and your portrayal of it is magical. I wonder how many in this new generation know about these wonderful tales. You did an amazing job in the writing of it! Luv, Lizabeth
