~Captain of the Guard~

Captain of the Guard

A moment in time...when two people kept apart
by circumstance and class, catch sight of
one another across an impossible gap
and cannot hide what they dream of.  

Our Knight is our Lady's champion,
and protects her honor and her virtue. 

Our Lady holds her torch alight in the window
for the weary Knight and his valiant horse,
a promise of comfort and warmth.

You do find such good short poems. I often feel just like that weary knight myself.
