Poem: Attack on Riverwide

Through the mists that fell
with the sword and axe
All was Lost
A vision of a future bright
came crashing down with
the end of Night
Shadows chased away by dawn
Replaced by fire;
battle drawn
The screams! they rent the air so pure
now choked with ashes
death inured
The Innocent murdered with the rising sun
defenseless, fleeing
from each one
a candle burning: snuffed
the Dead they linger still
the Living shall forever burn
