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.
