Challenge to Battle

Ivone Pons Leyr
March, AS XXXVI (2002)

My armor I don on this cloudy grey morn
To strive in a tournament grand
My heartís inspiration, your favor I bear
Weíll honor the folk of this land

We challenge all to battle, our temper we would test
To find if we are worthy of kings
The forging of a kingdom upon this glorious day
A legend of which bards will sing

Salute you the sovereign Crowns of the West
The last time such homage youíll pay
Your consortís warm smile shall bring strength to your arm
And ward fear and anger away


We fight for the right to wear Lochacís first crown
To serve this fair realm with our heart
With chivalry valor, we swear we will strive
Dishonor shall play here no part


"Invocation piece for Lochacís 1st Crown Tourney." -- Ivone Pons Leyr
