Colourful adventures, courtly love –
in days of old a counterpoint to
men of boldness risking all for glory.
Adored by ladies for their exploits
knights in shining armour honoured war,
with lance and horse and bravery.
But someone always gets hurt, so I deplore
those days of so-called chivalry
when all was risked in search of victory
and losers lost their lives.
All is mediaeval panoply at dVerse, where two of the original hosts are going out with a bang, and I felt I should contribute even though the subject is not a favourite of mine! We shall all miss Brian and Claudia as jovial bartenders.
