Default Another Harper Tune

Since you asked so kindly, Lady Maelin:

Harper Song: for Lady Maelin

My love's a precious gem as fair
as any joyous song or air
a harper plays
upon such days
when light are woes, and few are cares.

She shines with love alike the eyes
of dragons flying ever high
to twine with love
so high above
within the blue and peaceful sky.

Come fly with me and our love prove,
you make me rise as bronze, and move
my heart to long
for any song
as sweet as love and eyes of blue.

And so, entwined, in loving glow,
we'll look upon the lands below,
and settle here
in our shared weyr
where love is home, and lovers go.

My love's a precious gem as fair
as any joyous song or air
a harper plays
upon such days
when light are woes, and few are cares.

Ghyle, This is so beautiful, thank very much.

I will have to put it with the other wonderful poetry, that you have written for me.

This is certainly a lot happier,and thankfully not like the darker ones that you have been doing. This is just what I asked you for only, I just didn't realize that you were going to be dedicated to me.

It is so very lovley,once again "Thank You"..........

I'm not surprised, since in the rp it was your characters singing it.
