It glinted in the sunlight

and stood atop a mount,

but no man in any land

had the Strength to pull it out.


Neither did any man

have the Strength to bear the pain

of making right decisions

amid the common disdain.


Nor did any fearless knight

Have Strength to love his friends-

Strength to honor those he loved

and sworn to always defend.


Of course each man with skill

tried oft to prove his worth,

but the sword was only waiting

for a young, good Arthur’s birth.
