It Takes a Knight


   
 
this world can be quite lonely for the lass
who lives not by her whim but by her will
when bitter dregs of pain dry in the glass
it takes a knight to sweeten such a pill

not so unlike the true days of the past
when honors rare were but hopes in the mist
in times a woman must be tough to last
it takes a knight to bend a lady's wrist

while lesser men grow hot but burn away
and some clearly rebuffed before they start

the underqualified may wish their way
but
it takes a knight to win a lady's heart

and as the warmth of summer falls as leaves
the once new turns mundane like an old rhyme
a watchman sleeping would attract love's thieves
it takes a knight to win the war of time
