One Knight's Passion
Ron VanHooser 1956 (Franklin County, MO)
There is no dragon's fiery breath,
no black knight's sword that deals death,
no creature of the land or sea
that could keep me from possessing thee.
There is no thing that I could find,
not strong ale nor sweet wine,
even Merlin's herbs and such
pale beside My Lady's touch.
There is no rose that could smell as sweet,
no maiden fair that I might meet;
no blazing star in the sky above
could ever outshine my Lady Love.
There is no challenge I would not take,
no quest too bold for me to make,
no ties from which I would not part
to win my fairest Lady's heart.
On my honor this I swear,
all my life with you I'll share,
I pledge my sword, my heart, my name,
pray tell me My Lady you'll do the same.
