Garland for the Faerie King

Garland for the Faerie King

A Poem by Scott H.
"

A somewhat altered re-telling of 'Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight'

"

 

“Garland for the Faerie King”
 
A young knight went riding
Through the haunted wood
Flowers in Springtime
Are vibrant and new
 
The young knight went riding
Where the faerie fort stood
Flowers in Springtime
All glistening with dew
 
He leapt from his mount
And his challenge he roared
Flowers in Summer
In blues and in reds
 
The faerie prince met him
And drew forth his sword
Flowers in Summer
Make a crown for your head
 
They fought with each other
Clashed steel against steel
Flowers in Autumn
Dug up by the spade
 
The fought with each other
And neither would kneel
Flowers in Autumn
Beginning to fade
 
The faerie prince was impressed
Spelled, “I’d have you as brother”
Flowers in Winter
Are rare sights it’s said
 
The knight was enchanted
To be the faerie prince’s lover
Flowers in Winter
Are withered and dead

The original poem:

Flowers in Springtime
Are vibrant and new
Flowers in Summer
In sunlight and dew
Flowers in Autumn
Make a crown for your head
Flowers in Winter
Are withered and dead
