Hi folks, I wrote a poem inspired by my character recently, thought I would post it on here to see if there was any interest. Hope you enjoy :D

Yarlen goes North…

In steel I’m caught
and I head for the North,
I know little of why I fight.

In darkness I’m wrapped
and by frost I am wracked,
Steel Falcon is testing my might.

The Watch at my side,
I endure every chide
and I thank them I’m never alone.

To this land that’s war-torn,
my oath is now sworn,
and I know that I cannot go home.

We banish and burn
‘til Falcon returns,
fighting undead as we go.

At Steel Falcon’s command,
we defend Northern lands,
while we shiver and quake in the snow.

I like it. It would be a good one to get everyone chanting round the campfire.

Bravo Yarlen.
Consider re-submitting it in the faction songs forum, it can be found easier than on this one.
Its very good, have you any others up your sleeve.

it's good, would be easy to fit a simple drum beat to it, think people would pick it up quickly, mind if I add it to my collection?

Yarlen goes North…

In steel he's naught
So this year he bought
transcend armour, to try and fight

In darkness he's trapped
these black hoods, they get wrapped
round his face in the wind, it's not right....

The Watch at his side,
telling time as he strides
to the jail that he calls a home

To this land that's war-torn
his members are horse-drawn,
in carriage, or dragged if they moan

We vanish and turn,
fly like pidgeons, and learn-
Fighting undead in armour must blow

But Steel Falcon's demand
is 'dismiss from the land'
So take 'transcend' - that sword's just for show.



ps. as an aside,
Nishan's taken a bride!
but the oath we all swore say's it's banned

'In darkness a sword'...
A man's loins are his lord.
on the galleys, I say, he must stand.




You're welcome
~Ammy x
