Another of my Arthur/medieval style poems from a recent spate of the things, because they’re surprisingly fun to write. This one is about the knight and his lancers who ride out to battle an enemy who are sieging a town.
The knight rode out, lance aloft,
To spar against the storm,
Whilst thunder clapped,
And lightning struck,
Sparkling in the sky-split night,
The Knight Rode out, against the horde,
That pressed the city walls,
He rode with brothers, sisters bold,
With spear and lance,
As they thunger against
The rain-drowned earth,
Towards the great foe,
Their mettle steeled.
Great scythe of silvery death.
The wave of shimmering valour
Hit the foes, struck fear,
Upon the heads of this great foe,
Who had dared to come so far
Into our lands,
To the walls of our
That had stood untarnished
Bastion against the storm.
Somehow, our shining lance
Breaks the horde,
Our last hope
Hurts them deep,
Pierces the innards,
Of the great monster,
Shatters its bones,
Scattering it to the winds,
Leaving our knights outside
On the windswept and burnt field,
Alone, Exhausted, and Victorious.
