  A Ballad of Two Knights  

Two knights rode forth at early dawn
    A-seeking maids to wed,
Said one, "My lady must be fair,
    With gold hair on her head."

Then spake the other knight-at-arms:
    "I care not for her face,
But she I love must be a dove
    For purity and grace."

And each knight blew upon his horn
    And went his separate way,
And each knight found a lady-love
    Before the fall of day.

But she was brown who should have had
    The shining yellow hair--
I ween the knights forgot their words
    Or else they ceased to care.

For he who wanted purity
    Brought home a wanton wild,
And when each saw the other knight
    I ween that each knight smiled.
