Every Michelmas the village gathered to leave a single rose.
To honour the brave hero who left the monster in death throes.
No need to raise a monument, the knight had left one there.
An effigy made all of stone, the petrified Sir William Dare.
The man was brave without a doubt but he really took great risk.
For you should always bring a mirror to fight a Basilisk.
Inspired by Sue Vincent’s photoprompt.
