Chivalrous knights 

This gallery of nobles

dressed in their finery
seated around the king
regal colours and ivory

knights dressed in armour
attendants ever ready
this tournament is set
atmosphere so heady

to win the great reward
young men to prove their worth
facing the king`s champion
this is their right since birth

the sounds of thunderous hooves
and mighty horses racing past
followed by clash of lances
their reactions need to be fast

defeated, the losers leave
the triumphant knights celebrate
with honours bestowed by the king
new champion they nominate

loud cheers of excited crowds
after the joust has been won
so let the feast commence
this kingdom will have some fun!
