Subj: The Heart of Cyrene

Hello everyone. Squire Arkailus Ancyrion again with a short new poem that I was very eager to share. Hope you all enjoy it!

-----------------------------------------------------

===The Heart of Cyrene===

The dawn of day starts, shedding light upon trees
Soft dancing of the leaves, influenced by a light wind
A violent storm draws near, ominous fog closing in
It seems the time to take up arms is about to begin

A sound, a sight, very air thrilling with tension
Watch close, dear child, and take pride in your home
To protect, to defend, our beloved city strides forth
Against the Evil of the West and Bastion of the North

We stand, we fight, we hold close to our solid faith
Not all of us are warriors, not all commune to the arts
We are Cyrene, city of bravery and culture on display
Ask me why, I'll just smile and say, "Such is the way."
