A knight-errant is he,

armor only jeans and a tee,

a pen the sword he wields,

paper his crest and shield.

Whilst there be no dragons to slay,

he draws inspiration from the brae,

there are no damsels in distress,

only undying poetry to profess.

Pieces of love and ladies fair,

mayhap selkies with long red hair,

help you find what e're you seek,

and in turn your interest pique. 

Hearkens to the doves at dawn,

pays homage to ages long gone,

no more quests to set him roaming,

only moonbeams in the gloaming. 

Though worldly may be his talent,

none may call him less than gallant,

for be you foe or be you friend,

a bit of prose to you he'll lend.

Author's Notes:
In scot; "brae" is hillside, "gloaming" is dusk and a "selkie" is a mythical creature who looks like a seal in the water and a human on land.

...very nice!  the simplicity of verse is my favorite part.  Your lovely poem says so much in just a few words.  Congratulations on your special award!

I fancy the lending of prose by a gallant fellow, but the loan need never be received, for that implies an echo, but perhaps heard, swept through the earlobe into the cerebellum's sound dissecting and introspecting section and into the wind of brilliant spoken thoughts

Welll, shiver me bagpipes!..Classic and classy stuff, niece...Loved the atmospheric blast from the past in the description of a modern-day poet.


"no more quests to set him roaming,

only moonbeams in the gloaming."


Great stuff, Kym!...Unca Len

Delightful ballad-like song.  The rare words give it a Scottish flavor  Thanks for translating them; so much easier to appreciate this lovely set of verses.  --David

This is a great piece of work, Kym, very descriptive and medieval in context, a true fable. Well done.
