Fall Coronet, AS XXIX

A crash of swords
A crack of sticks
The men are coming to fight
To become Cynagua's Prince
Their dags flutter in the breeze
As they heft their weapons
By which they earn a Coronet
And claim a Principality

A clatter of shields
A battering of boards
The crowd witnesses it's future
Here a leg goes
There falls a Squire
the goal is not in their minds
Nor the courts to come
In their minds is only the next shot
In their hearts only their lady's love.


"This piece Oksenja wrote about the finals between Stefan and Vlad. At my request she presented it to Stefan at Fall Coronet. The style is Finish based on Churhgaers from the Kanteletar." -- Oisin mac Uislenn
