The Lonely Knight

Across the world from here and back,
One would travel by a lonely knight
As every men bound with honor intact.

There on the field no map could track,
Ancient and wild that detest the light.
Across the world from here and back.

Rare for the tree of nutrient they lack,
All wither and pale the branches of blight.
As every men bound with honor intact.

Adorn in color hue of orange pack,
Banner up raised as clear on the sight.
Across the world from here and back.

And face random beast of monstrous black,
Serve only little where fate meet might
As every men bound with honor intact.

Yet heroes come in a dozen stack,
A ladders game to climb on the height.
Across the world from here and back
As every men bound with their honor intact.
