The Skies of Aurlin
Author: Caela Kings

Chapter 0
From the Mouths of Gods...

How can you perch so high in the sky?

To remain above the Heavens as the waters draw nigh;

And how is it you burn only brightly in the dark?

As below your asylum the Heralds do hark,

And the Moon behind you will some time wane

In the mouths of Wolves everso vain;


But there you remain—


And the light may be swallowed

By the twisting Serpents of Fate,

And the Sun slain by mists, but a second too late;

But there would you shine, so perched to cry

As the dead call forth your Name.


And so you remain—


Betwixt light and dark as you fly

Through the airs of everlasting Sky;

But perhaps, when the clouds do finally decree,

From the Tree you'll once more flee.
