History of the Handfast
A poem dedicated to the anointment ritual and wedding of the Silvenar to the Green Lady

Tooth and claw

Blood enflamed

Chaos rules

A race defamed.

Stories lost

In history foul

Generations lost

In a werewolf's howl.

But a god's compassion

And a hero's soul

Fought twisting form

Upon ancient soil.

The cause seemed lost

In hope so lean

Until woman enter'd

Clad all in Green.

Hero and Lady

And god alone

Fought with muscle

Blood and bone.

The race so saved

From bestial ire

Oathbreakers sent

To sleep in mire

Hero and Lady

Will forever last

Joined together

By great handfast.
