Oops – sorry! I tried to pick a rose for you, but
have you ever tried doing that wearing gauntlets?

And once inside, my visor fell, I tripped, and
with all this damn armor, well, it weighs a bloody ton.

Sorry about your door.

I’ll go fell a tree in a stroke and
make you a new one.

I’m sure that ancient rowan by your window
must be blocking your view…
