Return

Antonio Giordano da Sicilia
June Crown Tournament - Invocation, 2010 (A.S. XLV)

Return to the day when time first began,
That tournament day from long ago,
When chivalry meant more than victory,
And honor was the kingdom’s corner-stone.

Return to the day when time first began,
A realm was born on that tournament field,
Love and beauty was the only crown sought,
When the fighters first took up sword and shield.

Return to the day when time first began,
Fighters fought to make their Lady the Queen,
That was the only reward that they sought,
On that day that they all forged the dream.

Return to that day when time first began,
At that tournament held so long ago,
When Chivalry meant more than victory,
And our honor made this Kingdom our home.
