Battle Lines (Tuscan Strombata with Couplet)
.
.
In lost lore of mighty knights of yesterday,

‘Tis here adventurous hearts may seek a thrill.

Tacit thoughts of long ago and far away,

Carry dreams to pleasant setting on high hill.

Watching battle lines reflecting armor’s shine,

Whence nervous warrior pass a flask of fine wine.

‘Tis ownership of land, causing much ado

About which King’s claim is false and which is true.

.

.
Keep small the cost of blood and lost life, we pray.

So that mighty men may live another day.

.
