When Knighthood Was In Flower

There was a Princess fair
In the days of the long ago,
She loved and did not care,
If the whole of the world should know
Though kings opposed her will
All the stronger her heart became
And though they offered her a crown
She loved him just the same.
When knighthood was in flower
When hearts and lances were strong
When ladies fair were in despair
Untill their knights came along
They lived romantic stories
And took what fortune might bring
When Knighthood was in flower
And love forever was King!
