How I Became a Knight
by - Hannah Pope
When I was eight years old,
I was sent to Raglan Castle
I was trained to be a page boy,
In the Tudor styling walls.
I practised my fighting,
Against a wooden dummy
It had a shield that I hit,
And would have to dodge its spinning
At fifteen I became a squire.
I served a noble knight.
My jobs included serving meals,
And cleaning my Lord's weapons.
At last I was twenty
And the king decided to knight me.
My future sword was blessed,
And put upon an altar.
Before dawn broke,
I had my breakfast before my dubbing.
it was in front of friends and family,
This is how I became a knight.
