Knight’s Honour – #writephoto

His honour came from days of old 
where maidens fell at his feet 

Dragons roared and spewed fire 
his challenge; to defeat.

His body clad in armor;
a helmet placed upon his head  

To defend the king’s daughter,
His life’s blood, willingly shed. 

As he breathed his last farewell,
she placed a rose upon his chest

She wept tears of sorrow,
knowing he had given his best.   

The dragon lay cold and lifeless;
the village safe, for now

The knight died for their honour
After fulfilling his sacred vow.

  1. So funny, I read the actual note, and, except for the bit of fantasy and a dragon, you were right, he gave his life for the king 🙂 (I liked the dragon better, though)
