Are there no more windmills to fight
     Brave Don Quixote?
Does not the song of the beautiful
     Dulcinea fill your ears?

I know not if there are my squire
     Faithful Sancho Panza
If the windmills have stopped turning
     They show it not
And I have sought long for Dulcinea's song
     But it whispers not on the wind

Will we continue our journey
     Brave Don Quixote?
Fighting demons in her beautiful name
     Keeping her safe from harm?

I know not when she will call
     Faithful Sancho Panza
But when and if she does
     We will be ready for it
For she is my Dulcinea, fairest of the fair
     And I am her one brave knight

Don Quixote, Man of LaMancha
Defender of the weak
Saviour of the heart
My sword for her honor
My shield for her love

ohmygosh Sven!  You're not gonna believe this, but I have only heard that song done on the piano once, and I have forever been trying to figure out who, what, where, you know?  It was the most exquisite piece I'd ever heard done on piano.....The only word I even caught was, "Dulcinea".....Ohgosh....you have to email me, and tell me the whole story...so there is a song out there like that???  Do you know by whom?  Is there only one?  It's a slow and beautiful piece.  Oh....I hope you can tell me more!!  I want to find the music to it, and learn to play it.  This poem of yours btw, was outstanding!  Very macho, but sexy nonetheless!  hehe  I saw the title, and immediately jumped on it in starving curiosity hoping to find out more about this "Dulcinea" character...now I have a bit more of an idea who she was.   Thank you!  You've just made my day!

Thank you all. . . I was inspired to write this piece after seeing a new movie about Don Quixote on TV. . . I have always loved the story and "Man of La Mancha" has always touched my heart. . .

Glad that you all liked. . .
