' Steel Sharpens Steel... '


Steel Sharpens Steel
So Somewhere A Blade May Cut
May Be The Clash Of Wills
So You Better Be Strong Enough

To Wield Your Sword Expertly
To Try To Pierce Armor Thru
If You Don’t Use It Correctly
Other Swords Will Pierce You

Steel Sharpens Steel
In A Parry Or In A Feint
Some Blows You May Feel
Drawing Blood, Sword-Point May Paint …

A Picture Of Combat Clearer
A Plunge Of Dagger Or Knife
Leaves A Warrior Purer
In Contests and Quests Of Life …

A Portrait Ever Surer
On A Tapestry To Prize
Of Jousters Thrusting Nearer
Riding On The Pens They Write …

Our Image In A Mirror
Seen With Other’s Eyes
Is That Much More Dearer
If It Becomes More Beauty-Wise …

Steel Sharpens Steel
So Meet Me On The Battlefield
Tho’ Wounds Be Deep, They’ll Heal
For This Crusade Is Not To Kill

Steel Sharpens Steel
Rally Him! and Rally Her!
See, The Lady Of The Lake Lives
Behold … Excalibur!

Steel Sharpens Steel
I Sally Forth With Valor
To Defend Castles I Build
On A Field Of Love and Honor …

(Because – Steel Sharpens Steel …)

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
