  1. The Knight Adrienne Rich

  2. The KnightBy Adrienne Rich A knight rides into the noon,and his helmet points to the sun,and a thousand splintered sunsare the gaiety of his mail.The soles of his feet glitterand his palms flash in reply,and under his crackling bannerhe rides like a ship in sail.

  3. A knight rides into the noon,and only his eye is living,a lump of bitter jellyset in a metal mask,betraying rags and tattersthat cling to the flesh beneathand wear his nerves to ribbonsunder the radiant casque.

  4. Who will unhorse the riderand free him from betweenthe walls of iron, the emblemscrushing his chest with their weight?Will they defeat him gently,or leave him hurled on the green,his rags and wounds till hiddenunder the great breastplate?
