It’s past midnight,
I’m far from sleep,
The moon is too bright,
I’ve lost count of sheep.
I sit up and sigh,
And go for a walk,
Under dark sky,
I hear creatures talk.
I settle down on top of a fence,
I put on a cloak for the night is cold,
Down falls snow of reminiscence,
I remember that day ten years ago.
Granny, granny where do they all go?
The men, the women,
Good Mary and Joe!
They come and go again and again!
Come closer child and listen to me,
Before I tell you, you must understand,
Light the fire, here is a story,
Of Lime, of Nysis and of this land.
Once this land was with three more,
Joined together, they were one,
Orta was what the land was called,
Shhh child, the tale has just begun.
Together we lived with one another,
Muridae men called Muris,
And tiger people called Turga,
We lived in peace and prosperity.
The goddess Nysis gave us Lime,
A magical fruit that held great power,
Greed and corruption brought crime,
And with it, Lime turned sour.
Two thousands were slaughtered,
The goddess wept scarlet tears,
All Lime was hoarded,
Thus began an age of fears.
Lime vanished and the land split,
Farther and farther from each other,
Monsters appeared and teeth were grit,
The future looked so very dire.
Suddenly, pillars of holy light formed,
Reaching past the clouds, beyond,
The world was transformed,
Once again it started to bond.
The world rejoiced and waited,
They heard the winds chime,
An era of adventure had been created,
Let all look for Lime!
You see now my dear,
Why they leave?
So that we may live here,
There is no need to grieve.
I know now, Granny!
One day I'll go too!
I’ll wipe this world of tyranny!
I’ll go Granny, I’ll go for you!
About to follow the words,
Of that younger me,
I skip back home,
And go straight to sleep.
*Note(s)* My pronunciation of Muris is like mur-ri aka. silent s. It’s probably wrong but I like it that way. :3 Also, good luck to all!!! XD
