Fortress on High

Fortress on high, stands fortified
Tower of the valley and countryside
Bow and arrow, sovereign sword
Comfort chamber, homely lord

Magnificent halls of grand prestige
Throughout the ages castles besieged
Guard protection, tall high tower
Stronghold defence of such great power

Order of the king, show loyalty
Rebellion against the royalty
Blacksmiths, merchants, products sold
Working life for adult role

Wealthy lords and active knights
Poor pheasants of lesser rights
Assembling of the scaffolding
Labours loading, strong building

Distant castle stands remote
A gatehouse, keep, chapel, moat
Conquered lands, mass invasion
Rebuilt towns of restoration
