A wondrous sight from afar, knight in white
and shining Armour, upon your guard
nothing may harm her. Defensive stance
take aim, may no other whisper
your damsels name. Cocooned hands
of strength willing to walk the desired
length. Beauty radiant for all to see,
you place her high within life’s tree. Such
honor she has earned at your hands, willing, you
are to cut down any man. The knight,
in shining white armor, protecting his love,
so nothing can harm her.
Watching from afar beneath the embrace of
a lovers star.
Flames of hair cross my face, white flames of light
illuminate the night skies. Diamond sparks,
topaz illuminations and jacinth flames
of dragons breath, I see with perfect breadth.
As Excalibur glides from ancient slumber
this blade alone is my true encumber.
Where once I wished for a knight in shining armour
to knock about my door,
Wisdom whispers, stand alone, and wish no more.
Excalibur is my true protector, white knight
fight on and protect her, I am born from
dragons breath with fire in my core, and for a
White knight in shining armor, I shall surely
wish no more.
