Mellia — Poem1
????, Earth Season, Season/Harmony Week
1626 Earth Season/Harmony Week/Waterday/during the day? This was supposedly written in Whitewall. [[[s02:session-3|Session 3]]]
I am speechless before you, love.
Shall I write of your eyes, evergreen ?
Your heart, gentle as a gray dove?
Your embrace, calm depths never seen?
Your warmth guards me from the world’s pain.
Your arms always shelter me and
Your calm words cool like summer rain.
I beg you, take my healing hand.
I would ever stay beside you
But I would not be true to me.
Poor Orlanth, a helpmeet find you
White Lady instead of the Green!
If you can let me tend to all
I swear my love shall never fall.
