I live in a castle as tough as my attitude
I am married to a beautiful queen with aptitude
My crown is of gold which makes me feel rich
I command many knights who guard my realm at every inch
I am wise as I am strong
I ride a black stallion as wild and swift like me
My children are joys but need to learn their manners.
At church I pray for Christ’s blessings and advice
From Rome to France my empire carries a heavy price.
I call all these lands home
Interest I take in the Renaissance, admiring the architect’s dome
The art, people and the land are all connected as a web.
