The knight

For some centuries it was the knight
who was nice and was doing it right.
He was strong and was ready to kill.
But the being he challenged was ill.

To the ladies he was sweet and kind.
And the virgin was always in mind.
And the virgin, for whom the knight fought,
was just priceless. She would not be bought.

But the times changed, until it took place
no more innocence there was to face.
Then the man changed his ways and turned sad,
being seen as a knight become bad.

At dVerse today they take us back to the times of the knight and ask us to be inspired.

  1. Oh the turn of the role of the knight .. and the times gone .. but just maybe the stories where glorified (though it would be nice if they were not).. I like this poem a lot.

  8. Makes me long for the good old days of knights and fair maidens, but I suspect it wasn't as gallant as we'd like to think. Peace, Linda
