GUARDIANS OF THE TOR
With Knights and squires, men-at-arms by the score,
A glorious host is here assembl'd
Contesting an honor not won in war
But peace, though they an army resembl'd
With Dons and cadets, gentles of good birth,
Striving to show whose blade is the swiftest,
Archers as fine as any on God's Earth --
Their targets testify which is the best.
And bards telling stories of heroes and war,
Or songs of the deeds of this tourney day,
All seeking to be nam'd Guardian of the Tor.
That honor from mem'ry never shall stray.
