Of Kingdoms and Knights

Toledo, Spain

January 1, 2016

There are tales short and tall

That many may still recall

Of the Taifa of Toledo

That once was, ‘tis now no more

P1040827

When the Caliphate did fall

“Twas a move north for all

To the kingdom of Toledo

Merchants, commoners and knights did go

A town of stone they did build

With high walls amid vale and field

Knights in armour on their steeds

Clattered up these narrow streets

Tales of glory, tales of woe

Was the story of Toledo

Of kings and queens and knights of old

Their tales have all been told

A tourist mecca now it may be

Where hordes come to feel and see

The medieval days of yore

That once was, ‘tis now no more
