Past the humming of swallows, the chirping of hummingbirds, The singing of nightingales, The soft rustle of autumnal leaves, The first buds of spring, The golden rays Piercing the verdant canopy, Harking back to a sylvan idyll And the halcyon times of…

The three ate in silence, ignoring the noise and revelry outside the door that separated the dining chamber from the main hall. The king’s indifference contrasted sharply with his wife’s and son’s desire to join the festivities. They did not have his…

How long dost thou imagine This will last? This ghastly artifice, That thou shamelessly Dost peddle to everyone? Besmirching thy name, Utterly bereft of remorse. With promises and jewels Dost thou lure them. A simulacrum of opulence Is all there is. Alas,…

They still speak of it, Creatures big and small. Whispers, whispers of a lone silhouette, Darting between the trees. Patient, grey-mantled, Wary, watching. A venerable witness To seasons uncounted. Her pups were taken, Forever lost. Now she roams alone,…

“And as you can see behind me, smoke still rises from remnants of the town at many points. That thick column of black smoke, right there, is where a rebel round made contact just a few minutes ago. Fortunately, the town has been abandoned, with no reports…

His eyes calmly swept the area, carefully surveying the hundreds of boats arrayed before him, as controlled as the bucking waves would allow them to be. Ready. Waiting. It would all be unleashed any moment now. We will take back what is ours. No, let’s be…

Doesn’t really go away, you see. They all say That one should cast These things away. Once was a time When it could be heard everywhere. Alas, ‘tis true that time changes everything. How the world has drifted since. But now, even now, After all this time,…
