I am woken by your cries in the night
I mount my steed and prepare to take flight
Tell me of the dragons that I may fight
To rid you of pain and restore your sight

Let down your hair from your prison towers
That I may place you amongst the flowers
And soothe your worries in April’s showers
Restoring your strength with all my powers

I will mend your heart and banish distress
And, with love and care, will make you hurt less
Relax and be touched by my mind’s caress
And let me serve you, my precious princess

I may not ride a horse, or dress in white
But I promise I’ll always be your knight ~

This was good. It seems to be coming a lost art, writing of the style of those days when love and honor had true meaning. Vince

I love this piece a lot Nigel. I wish you had leave the last two lines out because they broke up the feel for me. I was there in the castle watching this beautiful maiden letting her hair down while you rode your horse and save her. This is just wonderful. I hope making a suggestion is not offensive to you, if so I am sorry. I bow to your words once again Sir Nigel. Much love, Chris.
