Same old tune - Lei

A gallant knight was much admired by one and all, but he aspired to claim the hand of Guinevere whose charm and beauty had no peer. At night he'd bring his harp along and serenade her with a song. Alas, she'd heard it all before - Another knight was shown the door! 01/05/19 Lay It On Me - 8X8 Poetry Contest - Charles Messina

You classic style lives up to the promise of your avatar. (I just thrilled to the exploits of Percy, esp. the first time I read it!). Congrats, and thanks, S.P. :) Gershon

It must have been a hard life as a 'knight in shining armour!' Thanks for 'stopping by', Jean.

Thank you. It is in the spirit of a traditional 'lay' but possibly too predictable for the sponsor.
