Eskalya

Colin MacLear
Oerthan Coronet, January, AS XXXV (2001)

Chorus:
Iíll sing you to a magic place
Surpassing in grace and beauty of sea and sky
With hearths inviting song and cheer
Eskalya alone is my heartís true home
Bedazzling skies of sable
charged with rays of vert and gules
Matched only in radiance and beauty
by ladies who are the kingdomís jewels
With a warmth to ease the traveler,
bringing comfort to kings and fools
(Chorus)
Magnificent mountainsí splendor
shifts as seasonsí spells are cast
With power embodied in virtuous
warriors of prowess unsurpassed
And their strength will guide the traveler
on adventures in wilderness vast
(Chorus)
Harmonious streams of silver
sing from sparkling glaciersí height
They echo the music of bards of
renown warding off the winterís night
May their songs inspire the traveler
to partake of our landís delight
Iíll sing you to a magic place
Surpassing in grace and beauty of sea and sky
With hearths inviting song and cheer
Eskalya alone is my heartís true home
