Expiry: Never

  1. Something I found while digging through the old threads. Not binned, far as I'm aware. Inspired by this image.

  6. >From the forested homes, bring sap and bring cones.
  7. >Go forth little one and give him your all;
  8. >go forth little one, do not tarry nor stall.
  9.  
  10. >From the bogs and the plains, bring plants raised by rains.
  11. >Go forth little one and show him your mettle;
  12. >go forth little one, but do not bring battle.
  13.  
  14. >The wind blows from the north, with its ice and its hate,
  15. >Carry there your great haul to him that thus spake:
  16. >You ponies of cold, you children of snow, bring me all your worth or bring me your souls.
  17. >For I am the wind that roars in the sky, and I am the fear that glints in your eye.
  18. >I am the winter, I am the dark, I am the ice that clings ‘round your heart.
  19.  
  20. >From the mountains and hills, all the land that forth spills.
  21. >Go forth little one and carry our hope;
  22. >go forth little one, to he that has spoke.
  23.  
  24. >From the rivers and lakes, all the fish we do take,
  25. >Go forth little one and carry our last,
  26. >Go forth little one, to he that has asked.
  27.  
  28. >The long night draws close, and our lights grow dim,
  29. >To the north you must go and say unto him:
  30. >We have brought you our spoils, we have brought you our wealth, we have brought you our store and all of our health.
  31. >We have come as you asked, we have come as you told, we have come without fear, brave and bold.
  32. >Go forth from this place, go forth from our homes, leave us to peace and do not return.
  33.  
  34. >From your forests and plains, from your mountains and lakes,
  35. >Come to me, young foal, from you I shall take.
  36. >From your warmth and your light, to my darkness and rime,
  37. >Come to me, young foal, for you are now mine.
