A Toast to Rivenoak
Tune (loosely): Adam Lay Y Bounden, 15th century by
Catherine de Gray
December 12, 2003 (A.S. XXXVIII)

Sing a song for all our warriors,
Sing a song for our ladies fair,
Let the Known World hear our Barony
With whom none other compares!
Let none dare to name us enemies,
Let none dare to raise their swords
For we are a mighty Barony
Great in both deed and word.

         Rise up now, all ye Rivenoak,
         Raise your glass and raise a cheer,
         Drink we all a toast together
         For we’ve prospered another year.

Health this Yule to our noble Barony,
Health to those gathered in this hall,
Praise to our Baron and our Baroness
Rowan and Grania!
May we prosper in the coming year,
Fame and fortune both to you,
Keep the ties of friends and family
‘Til we meet again next Yule!

         Rise up now, all ye Rivenoak,
         Raise your glass and raise a cheer,
         Drink we all a toast together
         For we’ve prospered another year.

Health to this our noble Rivenoak
Health to friends both near and far
Praise we now our Lord and Lady,
Rowan and Grania!


"Written for Rivenoak Yule A.S. 38, and in honour of stepping up as Bard of Rivenoak." -- Catherine de Gray
