Some Gardener loves risk being dashed against the Knight rocks of principle, pride, or the society’s rules of the day.

Sometimes the stories end tragically, with loves unfulfilled, as in West Side Story, Remains of the Day, or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

The struggle of true love against the Knight authorities—the Church—or societal rules of the day was a mainstay theme of the songs sung by the medieval troubadours… and by rock and roll bands today.
