THE WHITE KNIGHTS

Coats of Arms



 

the fighter's war cry is poetry, for it comes from their soul

The poet settles through the hall at night.
He joins within the scattered talking there.
His lute and harp are strung to ease the fright
Reminding sons and brothers what they dare.
The heroes from the past do live again
With legend for their blood and fame their name.
Cold weapons hot with purpose do begin
To pulse with passion for the daylight game.
Around the hall, the hounds of battle stay.
And, with the night, lay quiet for the now.

Come dawn, all thought of else will shattered be
But now, in dreams, their fear does furrow brow.
The harper plays to give them strength and cause.

The morrow sees him sing with what he draws.

Brotherhood



 

 

Do not weep, maiden, for war is kind.

Because your lover threw wild hands toward the sky

And the affrighted steed ran on alone,

Do not weep.

War is kind.



































Hoarse, booming drums of the regiment,
Little souls who thirst for fight,
These men were born to drill and die.
The unexplained glory flies above them,
Great is the battle-god, great, and his kingdom --
A field where a thousand corpses lie.

Do not weep, babe, for war is kind.

Because your father tumbled in the yellow trenches,

Raged at his breast, gulped and died,

Do not weep.


Swift blazing flag of the regiment,
Eagle with crest of red and gold,
These men were born to drill and die.
Point for them the virtue of slaughter,
Make plain to them the excellence of killing
And a field where a thousand corpses lie.

Mother whose heart hung humble as a button

On the bright splendid shroud of your son,

Do not weep.



Teach us, O Lord, true brotherhood

Teach us, O Lord, true brotherhood,
In daily thought and deed,
That we may tread with humble heart,
The path where Thou dost lead.

Give us the courage, Lord, to fight
With Thee all greed of gold,
To fight until Thy kingdom’s won,
Thy kingdom long foretold.
Love then shall reign supreme o’er all,
O’er heart and mind and hand,
Eternal love and brotherhood
In all this storm tossed land.

With vision clear and steadfast heart
So let us follow Thee,
E’en though it be that weary road
Which leads to Calvary.






The twelve basic rules of the Knights of the Round Table according to Giovanni Boccaccio in his "De Casibus Virorum Illustrium" were:

  • To never lay down arms
  • To seek after wonders
  • When called upon, to defend the rights of the weak with all one's strength
  • To injure no one
  • Not to attack one another
  • To fight for the safety of one's country
  • To give one's life for one's country
  • To seek nothing before honour
  • Never to break faith for any reason
  • To practice religion most diligently
  • To grant hospitality to anyone, each according to his ability
  • Whether in honour or disgrace, to make a report with the greatest fidelity to truth to those who keep the annals

Fast rode the knight by Stephen Crane

 

Fast rode the knight
With spurs, hot and reeking,
Ever waving an eager sword,
“To save my lady!”
Fast rode the knIght,
And leaped from saddle to war.
Men of steel flickered and gleamed
Like riot of silver lights,
And the gold of the knight’s good banner
Still waved on a castle wall.
. . . . .
A horse,
Blowing, staggering, bloody thing,
Forgotten at foot of castle wall.
A horse
Dead at foot of castle wall.


a knight never stands alone

What is a Knight without their Land?
But with no place to serve or stand.
What is a Knight without their Shield?
But sad a warrior bound to yield.
What is a Knight without their Steed?
But, without height and with no speed.
What is a Knight without their Spur?
Unable, then, to guide or stir.
What is a Knight without their Spear?
But with no weapon to turn fear.
What is a Knight without their Queen?
But like a bird without a wing.
What is a Knight without their King?
But like a harp without a string
What is a Knight without their Chain?
To fealty they have no claim
What is a Knight without more Knights?
Unable to keep Wrongs from Rights
What is a Knight without their Word?
Untrusted as a wolf with herd.
What is a Knight without their Name?
But like a fire without a flame.
What is a Knight without a Squire?
But like a hearth without a fire.
Now, what is a Knight who these command
But one who then can serve The Land
(FIRE): by teaching Truth from Mouth and hand.
(FLAME): by bringing warmth to heart and Land
(WORD): by keeping trust as sea does sand
(KNIGHTS): and holding with a noble band
(CHAIN): with fealty both firm and grand
(KING): and sharing fame of noble brand*
(QUEEN): inspired by grace that has all spanned
(SPEAR): with weapons to defeat fear's stand
(SPUR & STEED): and skill to ride and guide what's planned
(SHIELD): can Fame and Name of "Good" expand
(LAND): To serve A Knight must these command.
A Knight never stands alone. A Knight never stands alone.



young knight (for Kees)

I wear the clothing of a Knight-at-Arms
And bring about me all my noble things.
My sword and shield, my silver coat of rings
To ready stand to keep my land from harms.
I ride my horse all in my battle gear
And fight to free the innocent from wrong.
I climb the castle tower, high and strong.
And open up the gate to rousing cheer.
I know that some will say I live a dream
That "Knights and what they stood for all are gone".
I follow not their words for they are wrong.
For Knights do live, and what they give does gleam.
One only needs to do the deeds of right
To live again the honor of a Knight.
