On so goes the knight in search of shelter for the night.
Can I place "so" like this in the sentence?

After quite a bit of head-scratching, I'm going to listen to my heart:
That "so" has no right to be there, but it sounds sort of cute... like an uninvited but still adorable guest?
Is it meant to be part of a poem or have a poetic ring to it? If so, you have the backing of this non-native speaker of English.
I think we could consider it a (distorted) form of "the knight goes on so", meaning "the knight goes on in the same vein".
If not, perhaps consider "And so, on goes the knight" or the blander "And so, the knight goes on", where "so" would mean "therefore".
