Gawain

Gawain  such romance and beauty in a name

Many have asked from whence he came.

His father was strong of heart  a knight of old,

Who taught Gawain to be loyal and bold.

Gawain was Arthur’s nephew

He proved a fine friend  and ally  true.

Merlin became his closest friend

They stayed true to each other right to the end.

Even Guinevere was not safe from his charms

He beguiled her with his smile and she fell into his arms!

I hope no one is getting the wrong idea

I do not wish to taint the name of the Lady Guinevere

Enough gossip let’s to the real tale.

One Christmas tide all around the  table enjoying food and drinking ale.

Merry making was the order of the day

All damsels safe for now and no dragon’s left to slay.

All of a sudden the sound of pounding  hoofs

Echoed around the halls  and resonated to the roofs.

The doors of the great hall flew asunder

As a giant of green riding a verdant horse into the courts presence  did thunder!!

All was silent as the giant green knight dismounted  and stood before Arthur

I challenge you to take a blow at me, then in one year and a day I shall return the blow to thee.

Arthur always brave and ready for a challenge opened his mouth to accept the gauntlet.

But before the words had left his mouth Sir Gawain stood and and cried Green Knight address your words to me.

The giant knight bent down his head

Sir Gawain swung his sword across the giants neck

To the astonishment of all green man bent down and picked up his head!

As he  lead his horse from the hall, he turned his head to Gawain and said

Meet me next year at the Green Chapel you’ll need to find it , it’s a long trek!!

Next time I shall tell you the rest of the tale……

Morgause,Morgana, Mordred.

AH! here hangs a complicated tale

So entwined are these three, to shock you this cannot fail.

First there is Morgause the first daughter of Vivienne.

High priestess of the old ways, troubles from her stems.

Her half sister Morgana is Arthur’s too, twists and turns

I tell you so complicated were these three.

If I tell you the tale will you believe me?

Enchantment and witchcraft  playing no small part

Arthur and Morgause  had a child, being related did not keep them apart.

Mordred was the boy’s name he would be a knight and serve Arthur well.

Arthur would not of  known him and Morgause would not tell.

Mordred would fall by Arthur’s hand  at Battle of Camlann

Yet not before Mordred  fatally slays Arthur, a fatal plan.

The sisters locked by blood and magic,shared mother but not father

Both wanted Arthur’s death so they could rule his lands forever.

Morgause also known as Morgan la Fay groomed the boy in magic

She knew Mordred’s  future, saw it all. She cared not his end  be was tragic.

Most evil of the two sisters Morgause  twisted Morgana’s mind.

Morgana, before she knew the truth was loving gentle and kind.

Yet Morgause  whispered harsh truths about Utha , her Mother and father.

This twisted her mind and broke her heart made her hate forever.

A dangerous diamond in Camelots heart, treacherous and scheming

Forever of Camelot ruling she was dreaming.

Father and son but does either of them know,

One given life then deals the other a fatal blow.

Sisters entwined in magic and hate

They scheme against their brother leaving nothing to fate.

AH! here hangs a complicated tale

So entwined are these three, to shock you this cannot fail.
