The Fighter's Song

by
Catherine de Gray
June 23, 2005 (A.S. XL)

Tune: Edi beo thu hevene quene, anonymous, 14th century

For your honor I fight this day
Your favor you have given me
To fight with honor’s the only way
To win you the roses of a Queen
Your beauty, trust, your friendship and love
Are gifts which you have given me
So for your honor I fight this day
To win you the roses of a Queen

My heart shall strive to do its best
No stain shall blemish the token I wear
My strength shall be put to the test
I vow to honor the favor I bear
And though the victory may not be ours
I still will treasure the bond that we share
My heart, my lady I make this vow
I promise to honor the favor I bear

But should I win the field this day
I know that you will stand with me
No matter what may come our way
You’ll always be my lady, my Queen
Of all the fighters who step on this field
No one could be as blessed as me
For I have the love of a consort fair
You’ll always be my lady, my Queen


'Written for Invocation at June Crown, A.S. 40; a response to “The Consort’s Song”' -- Catherine de Grey
