It’s time to talk about what Jon Snow knows. “You know nothing, Jon Snow”, is the famous phrase from Game of Thrones. Furthermore, it’s now the subject of many meme. And, you can watch the video montage of the best ones! Such an iconic phrase. Consequently, May The Verse Be With You pays tribute this week to the the awesome character, Ygritte (Rose Leslie). What a great catchphrase!
What Jon Snow Knows
“You know nothing. Jon Snow”,
says Ygritte, who would know!
How did his mind empty?
Were thoughts lost, carelessly?
Perhaps time on “The Wall”
meant that he lost them all . . .
He’s not sharp, like Long Claw,
is his brain made of straw?
Ygritte told him often,
she never would soften,
and even in love’s grip
came this, from Ygritte’s lip . . .
words shot, like an arrow:
“You know nothing, Jon Snow”.

Poor old Jon Snow, knowing nothing. Kit Harrington did a fine job of portraying the iconic character. For example his “death”, which was one of the most watched season finales in recent history, and perhaps ever. But as for Ygritte, it’s a shame the pair couldn’t live happily ever after . . . But they actually did, in a way. In real life the pair are happily married. So, love really does conquer all, ultimately!
