The room’s charge
Made two hearts
Scandal of the century.
Lancelot couldn’t resist
Forever lost to Arthur’s queen.
Their passion ruined the
But he had Guinevere.
I find the story of Lancelot and Guinevere fascinating because it has it all: betrayal, forbidden love, and extreme risk. (I think being a trusted knight to the king and ‘stealing’ his queen is frowned upon and comes with a fair amount of risk!)
This is my response to Trifecta’s weekend challenge, which was to write 36 words which includes the words “charge,” “century,” and “lost.” If you want to read other responses, or give the prompt a try yourself, click on the tricycle picture to view Trifecta’s site. Have a great weekend!
