"A letter from the King "
The Knight stood silent in his chambers,
with thoughts of days of yore,
when suddenly there came a knocking,
upon his castle door.
It was a courier from His Majesty,
a message from the King,
within his hand a royal decree,
sealed with His Highness ring.
With zeal Sir Knight opened the scroll,
and read with great desire,
"Greeting to thee most noble Knight,
Thy services I now require.
I Know your love and loyalty,
to the realm and to the throne,
In times of need you've sacrificed,
your family, friends and home.
Your courage and your wisdom sir,
an inspiration to us all,
So now a new war rages hot,
tis you on whom I call.
My younger Knights tho' fearless true,
have not you're skills or fame,
so in old age I call you out,
come stand uphold my name.
With tears of joy and sense of duty,
he went to his armor room,
he ordered his servants, "Dress me now,
for battle I must groom.
You see the king has need of me,
tho' I've passed the age of war,
live or die I stand with Him,
as many times before.
I'll teach young Knights wisdom now,
to war in such a manner,
as to bring honor to our King,
and glory to His banner."
"Make haste O' courier, go tell my King,
that I who am old and gray,
shall battle the forces of hell itself,
to be with Him this day,
and if in ambush on my way,
this ancient Knight may fall,
my King shall know this faithful one,
did heed his Master's call.
