The False Knight on the Road

O where are you going, says the false knight on the road
I'm going to my school, says the wee boy and still he stood
What is on your back, says the false knight on the road
Me bundles and me books, says the wee boy and still he stood

Not to worry, the wee boy gets the best of his opponent.

The metal bird is twice his size
the boys chances looking bleak
till mighty he swings up his stick
and smashes bird-face in the beak.

Hi, is there a way of uying both calenders together and saving on postage or do they have to be bought separately?

I completely enjoy this image and the words. Best of all are the long shadows produced by the characters upon the ground. It is the perfect time of day for this encounter!

i'm glad to hear it
the false knight has a very long shadow

is there a Steeleye Span series on the way? (*in a hopeful tone...*)
or possibly Steeleye Span + Jethro Tull.....

I always get into an earlier century/folklore haunted Britain state of mind at this time of year.
