Title: Shadows Came to Haven

Author: player of Charna Ja'Varrel'Kav

      "Azure days with sun soaked waves, 
           Summer fades to rain. 
      Puffed cloud skies filled with burning lies, 
           Shadows bathe the lane."

     "The shriek of night lit by thunder's blight, 
           Body withers away. 
      Claw struck stone swells with deadly groan, 
           Shadow struck out bay."

     "Death tolls rise touched by craven flies, 
           Corpses shrivel in rain. 
      Mortal coils burn, Draezir's beast will yearn, 
           Mother to birth the bane."

     "Fisherman's mind, shadows touched to bind, 
           Peasant brought to dust. 
      Traveler of the land now with blood soaked hand, 
           Lost himself, his trust."

     "Nightmare's bride, Lost her love to this tide, 
           Shadows struck at shadow. 
      Locksmith by trade, now his love would fade, 
           Drawn like bone from marrow."

     "Dhe'nar was found, in kindred spirit bound, 
           Mother to birth the way. 
      In unity reside, lost child's soul they would abide, 
           Her strength used to stay."

      "Sorrower's play, lost was Haven bay, 
          To shadow's deadly reign. 
      'Til hope arose, seek herb that grows, 
           Score the land not in vain."

     "Bound by oath to find long lost growth, 
          Onar's pupil did not stray. 
      Thrust in hand by shriven one of our sand, 
           Shadow's turned to prey."

     "Prophet's spell joined with herbs to quell, 
           Into abyss shadows bereave. 
      Spurned was Draezir, his beast laid under razor. 
           Now lost child left to grieve."
