I tend to pronounce "several" with only two syllables, which would make Line 5 a beat short. Unless you wanted to make it
Several knights heard his words
but that only shifts the missing to beat line 7.
Maybe make it "Thomas the prelate was..." or some variation.
Maybe better still would be to avoid the word "several" altogether. as it's susceptible to alternative pronunciations.
