Medieval Mist

my knight in shining armor

so soon must you leave
oh king of my heart
from afar i hear
the trumpets pealing
i know you must depart
off to war
into the woods
and beyond
must you join
your valiant army
to face your foes
with mighty roar
where earth shall
turn to red
from a pool of blood
spilt by the slain
i shall but sit here
and await
the joyous trumpet sound
announcing
my knight's return
proudly mounted on
his white gallant steed
and crowned
with olive wreath
thence shall i run
to his waiting arms
and ride with him
into the mist of eve

I have always loved this picture.........is this a poem inspired by the picture, or is it based on real life, I wonder? It is highly romantic. I vaguely remember those feelings, cobwebby though the memories are, ha ha! A lovely romantic poem. Good work!

Beautifully picturised the lovers waiting for her knight in shining armor to return from the fight... very nicely put Bing - The pink lady. I enjoyed it throughly.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
