Poem - Arete Serenitas
I dunno, maybe it's the hour, or maybe playing with muses on MUD had inspired me, but I wrote up a poem for the third account's profile. The poem is sort of based on the avatar image, of course, and partly on the name.
Arete Serenitas by: me
When darkest before dawn Pray of Eos to herald the end of the night When in the tempest rage Pray of Iris to herald the end of the blight.
When endless bloodshed flows Pray of Irene's guidance to end the fight When lost in unknown wilds Pray of Luna and the stars' guiding light
Endless prayers through time are given wing To which no god e'er descend their height Yet unlooked for, the wonder within The human virtues and human might
Of all the ills from Pandora's box Was Hope gifted last of Man's birthright Leaders, creators, peacemakers, all Dream for mortal-kind wings to take flight
1. OK, it's kind of meh, but what do you expect at almost midnight while I'm on meds.
2. Only two items on that avatar costed over 3k. The staff was 7k and is actually a hand down from my main account. The wings is around 20k.
3. Also, I did a search for Chinese literary references to nightingales (for my main account). I came up with the two following by western authors: The Nightingale by Hans Christian Andersen The Chinese Nightingale by Vachel Lindsay Would be nice to find some references from Chinese authors, although that would involve a lot of reading through Chinese sites. *sigh*
