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.
