A Night for Knights

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2
Prompt #350 - Nights In Shining Armor

"We’re writing a night poem. The shining could be the moon and stars. The armor can be an alcove of trees. The romance is whatever stirs your emotions! Take your words and try to get medieval on us. Or better yet, make us swoon."

Riding an ivory-colored
horse, he gallops
down the path, metal
clinking.  She sits
on a smooth stone facing
the other way.  Today, she
is sorrowful, lonely.
Maybe that full moon has
altered her mood.  She hears
horse hoofs and a clanging
sound.  She swirls around,
rubs her eyes.  The magic
lamp had worked!  Here was
her knight to whisk her
away to a brand new world
on an ivory-colored horse.
