Description: This poem has a lot of Power metal influence. Power metal is a type of music generally much more popular in Europe than it is in the U.S. It's themes are more medieval, fantasy and mythology baised. All the lines here are my own. I relate to this kind of stuff a good deal and thought i'd put a poem up from this, prehaps quirky, aspect of myself. Tell me what you think of it.
A Brotherhood of Knights -------------------------------------------
We are bound together by the things we believe
United in our quest for what is just and right
We are vigilant and wary, on the qui vive
Quick to rise to the challenge and fight
Our numbers maybe smaller than our foes
But we will be brave, defiant and strong
Continuing to rise from the raining blows
Mounted and ready to charge into the throng
Gathering momentum, the roar of the hooves pounding
In the wind of speed, our banners proudly flying
The lingering notes of our horns sounding
The tips of our lances and blades of our swords shining
The steel of our armor glittering in the sun
A sight like that found in a bardís sung story
For like heroes of old we move swift as one
In chivalrous pursuit of illustrious glory
can you tell me where i can find some of this "power metal" because in australia we are really ony getting USA rubbish at the moment. i would like to say we are multi cultural, and in some ways we are, but when it comes to any form of media, we just lick up american crap. people like me who want something different would struggle if it werent for the internet.
now about the piece:
i like it. the theme itself is almost calming to me. i get the impression of relaxing after a battle hard won.
i dont get braveheart, i somehow more get gothic warriors but then again thats just my heritage.
