Cento – Summer Storm

clouds were gathering to the north, obscuring the mountains
above the city, the holy mountain, Thyr, looked benignly down
he’d been washed down from Black Seza, a place no sane man would go
his tattered robe was gone, to be replaced by a thickly brocaded robe of red and gold
he looked up and smiled, showing a row of gleaming white teeth
today Nashir, the stranger and a monk of foreign gods walked sedately by the king’s side
no words were said but her father’s eyes suddenly widened
quicksilver is named demon’s blood because it sends people mad
there is enough knowledge here in Variss to keep a man sated for life
support me, or you will be married to Malwyn Sigard
