**The Knight**

The Knight

He lives in balancing harmonies

under the sky never ending disguise

the King and his commanderies

a loyal knight always complies

to a ravaging war he is galloping

saved by Angels! fighting Demons!

seeking Eden! Hell dispiriting!

the horse stops, sensing evil

nonetheless the armor is sealed

sacred providence, anointed with holy oil!

for in his chest his heart concealed

fear not, I AM the I AM, without turmoil

hand in hand the sword and the shield

honor and valor, he must never yield

    Echoes of Revelation in the New Testament here, on a spiritual theme - 'tis how I see this.

    Powerful words to portray the might of a fearless Knight - - especially the one who could and still can state - - - ---- " I AM the I AM" -- a wonderfully positive read - - thank you Claudelle.

    Is that what they used to call the macho personality.
    Thankfully i was a big strong chap as a young man so i never had to be 'macho'.
    In view of the poetry i write i don't think i could claim to be nacho now either LOL.

      Ahhh, Macho; the terminology given in America by social worker Griffith (1947),in her attempt to understand Latino culture. But, in the case of โ€œThe knightโ€, it draws from the concept of chivalry and duty above self.
      You gave me a good laugh though & made me think about current subjects
      affecting the globe such as epidemics, government, immigration, etc.
      It seems as if a bleak future awaitsโ€ฆ.

      ANGELA aqui ~ Gracias Claudelle ~ Por una Poem de Los Caballeros ! To be a KNIGHT is a very high calling ~ One on whom the KING depends totally ~ For His Defence ~ Honour & Survival. The Qualities of a KNIGHT are Trust - Loyal - Assistance - Bravery - Courtesy - Obedience - Humour - Purity. These are the ideal Qualities in all Men in any Circumstance. Todos Hombres gusta a ser Caballeros - but not all possess all the Qualities !

      El Mio Amorado - BRIAN - tiene todos los Cualidades
      Brian es Mio Caballero Vero - AMEN !
      Benediciones y Paz y Alegria
