Josep de Montfort
fought in Spring Crown Crucible, A.S. XLVIII
(Celtic buried rhyme)
To test their mettle on the field
With sword and shield fighters came forth:
A count and knights, lords and ladies
To assay Josep de Montfort.
The Crucible would temper all
A mighty brawl to forge a king
And though Josep did not advance
He braved each glancing blow and sting.
With blow for blow and strike for strike
The like his fellows would recall
Josep de Montfort fought for fun ~
And one he fought will rule us all.
