Brave Knight

In these times of oppressing days

Pressing engagements are on delay

Souls are in need of a valiant Knight

To pull us from this pool of fading light

A quicksand of swallowing gloom

Rules and restrictions clinging to every room

Oh. Brave Knight save us from doom

Roll away the dark stone covering our tomb

Bring us your enlightening thunderbolt

A silver torch of liberty to our vaults

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

    1. This is a very dark post! I think we all feel like this way sometimes during this time of pandemic…I know I do! The soulful music goes very well with the poem.

      Dwight, thank you for expressing the feelings that we all are experiencing from time to time. Denial does not help. Better days to come!

  1. A valiant brave knight…yes, indeed!
    What a powerful, encouraging poem, Ivor! The images and emotions are vivid!

    Hey, I just thought of something…we can be the knight’s assistants when we help someone who needs help. πŸ™‚
