This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

Friday Poetically - Challenge from http://onestoppoetry.com/

Thanks Brian, a tricky challenge.

A Knight of Old.

A knight of old can not show fear
He must take peril in his stride
Yet I am frozen solid here
I’m literally petrified.

A white knight should be strong and bold
A knight of old can not show fear
And to his knightly vows must hold
To fight for all that good holds dear.

I feel my doom is creeping near
I can not lift my sword to fight,
A knight of old can not show fear
Yet see me petrified with fright.

This stony embrace holds me hard
Will future squires laugh and jeer
Or will I put them on their guard,
A knight of old can not show fear.


  1. ah the pressure of being a knight, being the example...honaorable, strong....can they ever show their softer side...nicely played on the prompt...
