Pro his grates imo corde ego ago ingeniosis
quorum electandus victor idoneus est.
Equite rufo animoso ensem praesigne vibrante
aere perennius hic nunc monumentum agitur.
Constructorem ideo, qui nomine dicit ab Ortu
se pugnatorem, plaudite, amici, hodie!

And the winner is Brickninja with his Red Knight:

Woah!! Thank you so much! This is the first time I've ever won any contest or challenge, even placed in one! :shock: Also, great poem. I'm learning Latin ATM, but don't know enough to translate it, so I had to run it through Google translate, which of course messed it up and didn't do it justice.

Yes, Bluesecrets has the prize so do contact her.

Furthermore, for those of you interested in the verse, here's a rough translation:

For these (entries) I heartily thank* the ingenious persons
from which one suitable winner must be chosen.
Through a wondrous** and courageous red knight swinging his sword
a monument more lasting than bronze is created***.
Therefore, friends, applaud today the builder,
who through his name says that he is a warrior from the East****!

*Actually grates is a somewhat archaic way of saying thanks. Normally you'd say gratias, while grates is rather used in formulas around divine services etc, but it suited the metre better (and I like being archaic I suppose)!

**I was a bit liberal in the declension of praesigne (you'd most often expect praesigni here, but it doesn't fit the verse), but hey, this site is medieval and it was all a bit less restrictive then.

***A reference to Horatius, Carmina III: XXX

****Actually from "the rising", which in reference to the sun means the east.

Probably not. Since we have the Bound contest running now and the CCC is starting in November there's not really room for one right now. Stay tuned for next year!
