The last of the Knight-errants

And where are you now, happiest of breeds?
And who now performs thy most noble deeds?
And thy shimm'ring lances, thy proud steeds?

Shall maidens cry forlorn, and dragons roam free?
Shall rude enchanters their practice unhindered be?
Shall high kingdoms fall, mighty rulers forced to flee?

Where be thy squires, most faithful until the end?
Where be thy armour, thy bright targe to defend?
Where be thy true lady, her sworn cause to amend?

They have faded like a crumpled, yellowed page,
They have departed like an actor from the stage.
They have none to rescue, no more wars to wage.

The last of the knight errants rode forth long ago,
They hung up their arms, they renounced a foe
That fought not chivalrous, that stooped so low.

Yet such wrongs remain, as would call them hence,
Yet such deeds are done that require recompense,
For only Knight-errants will do, sans common sense.

Dear Saturn,


Voyages abroad inspire the genuis at home within his own design.

Beauty be the master driven by creation.

Noble themes, etched by a fine craftsman.

Ignores critics alive by the will to disguise.


Thank you for this epic lore, of romance upon the high seas.


peace to love,

jamiano
