I couldn’t remember if this went in Ask Melody or General Windstones…so I just picked one.
Presenting, for your entertainment (and free of my personal ramblings and misgivings about this piece), the final submission for the 2017 Bardic college year. Please enjoy!
“A Windstone’s Winter Melody”
The poads came up from out the south,
chirruping as they went;
Their tiny beaks clacking–
good cheer, not lacking!–
atwitter and quite content.
The kirins came from the frozen north,
Prancing o’er snow and hill;
With golden horns shining
and silver bells chiming,
they frolicked amidst the chill.
The unicorns came from out the east,
collared with wreaths of pine;
their dark eyes glistened,
containing their bliss and
joy for the night’s design.
The dragons flew out of western lands
down from the mountains high,
with boughs of holly
and laughter quite jolly
they soared upon the sky.
The griffins received the honor this year
of hosting the merry meet;
their spirits were high
as they prepared and put by
the festive decor and treats.
In no time at all they’d gathered together,
“Merry Christmas!” sounding out;
the fire burned bright
throughout the night
as presents were strewn about.
The poads were all singing a winter carol
louder than one would think;
it’s likely the glogg
or the “fancy” egg nog–
of course you’d blame the drink!
Others joined in and soon it got crazy;
that much is expected at least.
With friends around
the joys do abound
especially if there’s a feast!
With good song and great cheer the longnight soon passed;
the morn broke with the dawn.
in a manner most meetly,
the sun smiled sweetly;
the gathered began to yawn.
So they took to their roosts or curled up together,
losing themselves in dreams;
heedless of snow
and carefree of woe,
bathed in the warmth of sunbeams.December 15, 2017 at 5:38 pm #1533174
