A TALE OF YORE

Updated on April 9, 2012


Blazing scarlet, fiery skies

Strong and swift rode the horseman

His flowing robes cast a black silhouette

Stately in form, staunch and tan

Through woods, meadows and streams

Unruffled, bold and merry humours

Made the woods vibrant and mighty

The knight of the land, prince of rumours

And so lives the age old tale

Of the dauntless, valiant Robin Hood

Inspirer of madmen and wild soldiers

Of hot blooded followers who by him stood

Kings trembled, so did Dukes and Lords

And the merry men in olive green

Ruled the land with joy and mirth

By death or defeat was he unseen

As now do we relish in tales of yore

Forever in hearts, cherished for his valour

His cheeky courting of pretty lasses

And bounteous charity that none could deter

      A wonderful poem that takes us back to another era, another time, the days of chivalry. I have always loved the Robin Hood tale and this is a very good tribute to that tale.
