In the Squire's Glenn

Gathered beasts and men

To hear the words expounded

Not elegant words

That fly like birds

Just nicely chosen and well rounded.


In the glow of the morning's light

Man and beast discussed their plight.

"Shall this battle rage on this worldly stage?"

Asked the likes of the Silver Knight.


"It shall, indeed!

So fetch thy Steed,"

Said the Witch in Dragon attire

"But mind you --- Oh Knight

Come ready to fight

For I shall bring Rage and Fire!


So the two agreed to meet after lunch;

They could hear their mother's call.

A break for lunch shouldn't take long

If it doesn't involve a trip to the Mall.
