The Castle

Rating: 3.5

All through that summer at ease we lay,
And daily from the turret wall
We watched the mowers in the hay
And the enemy half a mile away
They seemed no threat to us at all.

For what, we thought, had we to fear
With our arms and provender, load on load,
Our towering battlements, tier on tier,
And friendly allies drawing near

On every leafy summer road.

Our only enemy was gold. And probably someone's passion to it.

We could do nothing, being sold; Our only enemy was gold, And we had no arms to fight it with. It is a great poem showing your artistic skills. 10 for the sharing of the poem.
