    dotsThe Bareback Princessdots
    -------------------------------------------





    She sits in silence with head bowed low
    Cradled by fingers now trembling so
    Sobs and tears like mighty rivers
    fall from her frame that shakes and quivers

    How could she have said such awful things?
    Accused him of treachery to her father, the King?
    The Knight for whom she wept and sighed,
    Carried her colors on his lance held high.

    He had bravely fought at her dear father’s side,
    And suffered a gash near took his eye!
    Who battled and fought till the day was won
    And again her flag waved under the sun.

    Found guilty Before the King’s court and jailed!
    Like a common knave but the Knight prevailed.
    Was vindicated and restored to his station,
    As the kingdom prepared for a celebration.
    .
    How could she have been such a fool?
    She loved him, how could she have been so cruel?
    To allow her jealousy so evil and vile,
    Bring him to death’s door with her hateful black bile.

    Could he ever forgive her faithless perfidy?
    Could she expect him to treat her mercifully?
    She must show him how her love still burns,
    For his touch, his kiss her heart still yearns.

    She must repent, pay a heavy toll
    She would bare herself and bare her soul
    It mattered not her saving face,
    Only to savor his warm embrace.

    And if it is not what’s meant to be
    At least there’s penance in humility.
    He was stripped of his dignity and his grace.
    She’d strip herself the accoutrements of place.

    She would go to him not as a princess apart,
    But as just a woman following her heart.
    The blanket, his gift with his coat of arms
    Thrown over her steed , her stallion named Charms

    Her saddle followed she tightened the straps
    Then onto his back giving the reins a snap
    And off she rode with no cloth on her frame
    Like a homeless no one, without a name

    Through the castle doors so tall and wide
    And into the chill of the countryside
    Through the wood She rode on brave charms,
    To her Knight to his home and to his farm.

    The sight she gleaned as she left the woods
    Was a sea of loyal subjects around where he stood.
    Fellow knights, courtiers and her father the king
    Celebrated the return of Knights sacred ring.

    Undaunted she approached the joyous crowd
    Loudly hailing their knight so proud
    There were gasps and murmurs as she rode along
    Then a hush like a wave rolled over the throng

    They bowed and parted leaving a path
    That led to the knight and her father’s wrath.
    The only thing to make a sound
    Were Charms steady hoofs pounding the ground

    Her bosom rose and fell with the pace
    but hidden by long lockets of curly red lace
    Stunned by their Princess without her crown
    Nor her regal attire her golden gowns


    At last before her father the king.
    “Forgive me father”, her voice did ring
    “I have brought dishonor upon your Crown
    And for this I will respectfully step down

    And leave the kingdom with great haste
    For my family’s honor has been debased”
    And you my knight, my love and soul-mate
    Into your precious hands I deliver my fate”.

    The King was silent not uttering a sound
    The Knight spoke up while looking around.
    “You all know I’ve been in battles so fierce
    And many a time my armor was pierced.

    But never have I witnessed a deed so brave
    By a Knight of high station or neither a knave
    As my princesses heart-felt act of contrition.
    I reject her self-imposed expatriation.

    She is my Princess and will always stay
    In my heart - in her service my sword I lay”
    With that he leapt upon her horse
    She snapped the reins and set a course

    Off they rode under leafy covers
    Two hearts, two souls, two fated lovers
    Some say it is nothing but a romantic story
    Most believe it is the kingdoms past glory.
