Sonnet of Knights

Written by: Tara Andre

Do you wish to learn the way of knights?
My son, you must vow to apply yourself well,
For in taking the oath that knights follow,
Comes engagement with the forces of Hell.
Be strong of wit and sure of heart; never
Give up, or turn from your sacred duty,
Lest you be accounted with eternal shame
And die without your honor or dignity.
Remember your armor, remember your sword;
Fend off the Dragon and call on the Lord.
Protect those around you, guard them all well,
Serve as your family's brave sentinel.
Stand strong for your king; it's his life you hold.
A valorous knight is worth more than gold.
