Fast rode the knight
With spurs, spurs, hot and reeking,
Ever waving an eager eager sword,
"To save my lady!"
Fast rode the knIght,
And leaped leaped from saddle to war.
Men of steel flickered and gleamed
Like riot riot of silver lights,
And the gold of the knight's good banner
Still waved on a castle wall.
. . . . .
Blowing, staggering, staggering, bloody thing,
Forgotten at foot of castle wall.
Dead at foot of castle wall.
