Sick Father

Ugarte created this little poem about the ailing King Graham in King’s Quest 4.


The family of Daventry
Were in their castle
On a beautiful day
That they would love.

But Graham felt pain
Pain from his heart
The family tried to help
But he fell unconscious.

What to do, they thought.
Then a fairy came
Who knew what to do
To bring Graham back.

“There’s a fruit,” said she
“That will heal him”
“But it’s far away”
“In a distant land.”

Rosella hoped to get it
Because that really seemed
Like the only way
To bring back her father.

I’ll get it and come back,
She thought bravely.
I don’t want to see my father
To die unexpectedly.
