They have gone from me; the smoke and ash of their great fire are all that remain here under the encroaching darkness.

The forest at my feet echoes with the rumour of war; the iron-shod horses thunder eastward on the Great Road – tho’ whether to a dawn of hope or the world’s ending none can tell.

Northward I hear the grasses groan ‘neath iron-shod man-beasts, bent on wrack and ruin.

To the south an Eagle spreads his wings, bound for the aerie of his ancestors.

The West Wind bears consolation: The Faithful ones shall return, the voices whisper.

I await.
