The Castle

Written by: Mandy Tams The Golden Girl

As the castle walls loomed up to the side
They met for the first time eyes open wide
Lost on the journey, not knowing what they’d find
But not like a fairy story, their love was not blind.

They risked all they had for an hour or two
Not knowing what would happen, neither one knew
They shared a drink, and words so easy on the tongue
Not realised those words would be love before long.

Their castle they love and they will never forget
The love that they found they will never regret
The knight on his steed the girl by his side
When he offered her love he didn’t take her for a ride.

She took his love; she kept it close to her heart
He suffered with her when they had too part
But they both knew it was a temporary thing
When the time was right she may even wear his ring.

He must approach her parents and ask
To climb the walls of the castle what a task
But the castle where they met its doorway he knew
It was via her heart and he just had to walk through.
