O is for Oath of Fealty

Oath of Fealty: A solemn pledge or promise, appealing to a deity, a ruler, or another entity (not necessarily present) to attest to the truth of a statement or sincerity of one’s desire to fulfill a contract or promise, usually on a Relic of Saints.

 

 

oath of Galahad
Sir Galahad in his search for the Holy Grail (Source: http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/2014/british-irish-art-l14133/lot.9.html)

 

I, as Galahad,

promised you the Holy Grail

to bloom your health back.

 

If lore said only those

whose heart is pure, are worthy;

you were the worthiest.

 

Although I failed you,

you never stopped believing

in your humble knight.

 

I swore faithfully

but I came back fortuneless.

as your life faded.

 

You never promised,

it was me who made the oath

of eternal love.
