Ode to the Knight


Google assembled these pictures



Ode to the Knight

The knight

was daunted;

his chess pieces

thwarted/

across the floor

He looked to

the ceiling

An angels'

repose

gave inkling

(Nerves' sinue)

to battle

once more

Not for self...

Not for country...

(he was dying)...

No.

But for mankind

And womankind

He threw open

the doors...

Found against

Prejudice

and Ignorance

his Rook

And his Pawn

Became Knights!

Valor grew

And honor shone

When this knight lifted

His sword

Clever and imaginative... I smiled. I haven't played chess in awhile, as it is a clever man's game, and I am not a clever man. <grin> bea

That was neat Nat.  I know I've told you before, that I really don't understand poetry very well- but I read this one because I'm teaching my guy about King Arthur and his round table!  Sorry- I think (?) this is about the knights in a chess game- I really am dense when it comes to poetry!! SORRY!!!!  Love Carolyn :)
