Hereby presenting an excerpt from Bulfinch’s Mythology (1913) by Thomas Bulfinch. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page, which is the ornament for Chapter XXIII: Geraint, the Son of Erbin.
“In the midst of a meadow which is here, two forks will be set up, and upon the two forks a silver rod, and upon the silver rod a sparrow-hawk, and for the sparrow-hawk there will be a tournament. And to the tournament will go all the array thou didst see in the city, of men and of horses and of arms. And with each man will go the lady he loves best; and no man can joust for the sparrow-hawk, except the lady he loves best be with him. And the knight that thou sawest has gained the sparrow-hawk these two years; and if he gains it the third year, he will be called the Knight of the Sparrow-hawk from that time forth.”
