In fields draped of green stand knights in white, their armor faded to mark their time
As gentle breezes whisper names, of those whose armor
Stand so proud
Not for glory, nor for fame
We who are privileged to walk their grounds
Stand in awe of battles won
With hats removed and tears held back
We silently salute, those victorious sons

Those warriors dressed in white stone case
King Arthur, himself would commend
Leaving family, youth
To answer call
With arms stretched outward from their sides
Staking this ground as their freedom's claim
Placed within their armor stone
Each and every bold knight's name

Those rows and rows of brazen kin
The ones who died in battles fight
Our gratitude bestowed to them
In the hallowed fields of knights in white
