"Heroes Still Living"


Hail heroes still living,
Heroes in each lineage!
Roundly we remember
Rare tales told of valor.
Wound-wands and words rally,
Wielded with all honor.
Might beyond men granted,
Makes some feed the ravens.

Hail too, fine foes, fiercest
Fighters gifted greatly!
Without you, no worthy
Warrior knows purpose.
Bring your wood-bane fingers;
Breathe airs of tree-breaking.
Power that passed mortals
Pours forth at your saying.

God-given gifts linger,
Growing great in story!
Be as in old battles,
Bid good against evil.
Spear-din speaks our summons:
Speed onward in answer.
Tell a tale of talents
Taut against each other.

* * *

Notes:

The requested form was a drottkvaett, a type of alliterative verse.  This isn't quite perfect, but it comes close.

Lineage is a form of family reckoning.  Some superpowers run in families.

Kennings are metaphors used in Celtic and Norse tradition.

EXTRA: [personal profile] singingwithoutwords has written the vignette "Influence" about Director Fury, inspired by this series.  While I can't promise everything in it is strictly true at this stage, it is very much along the lines of what he tends to believe.  So it's either canon or quasi-canon for Love Is For Children, and linked as an inspired work.

ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
Based on an audience poll, there will be a half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics from April 14-20.  There are lots of epics and some shorter poems.  

Poems are generally listed in my best guess of series chronological order.  It's awkward with this one because there are so many different characters, several with their own subsets of poems.  Damask is the one who launched this whole thing, so that's what is designed as the "beginning" ... except that now I have a bunch of things that don't necessarily have a timeline point, plus some like Dr. Infanta and Granny Whammy that predate Damask on the local timeline.  That makes ordering the poems challenging.  However, within an individual character arc, poems higher on the page come before those lower on the page, so you can figure out which Damask poems come earlier or later, and so forth.

I have updated the series page with poems from the most recent fishbowl, including notes about prerequisites and sequels.  Please take a look and think about which ones might interest you.

 [personal profile] finch wrote me this lovely little ficlet, "Messenger of the Depths."  Imagine if angels were marked by something other than wings ...

This poem came out of the April 1, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by [personal profile] chanter_greenie. It also fills the "color" square of my 3-30-14 card for the [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo fest. This poem belongs to the series Fledgling Grace.

Thanks to some links by [personal profile] janetmiles, "Lawless, Winged, and Unconfined" is now complete.  Scott and the incubus settle down together.  Aww!

There are also two new verses in "Hatching into the Future."  See who is waiting for the newly awakened knight.

 "The Firelight Isle" previously used IndieGoGo and is now on Patreon.  The first chapter is free online.  Things I noticed:

* Look at that depth of field!  Golly gee whiz wow.
* The protagonists are two childhood friends.  Yay, friendship story!
* The girl has freckles, and all of her clothes on.
* The boy has hair down his back, just like the girl.
