Round the Fire
Leah Raedaelf of Pagham
October 29, AS XXXVIII (2003)

Light the fire and tell a story,
Round the fire we’ll sing a song—
Though the summer may have ended
We’ll stay warm all winter long.

From the tourney field we tell of
Deeds of noble champions bold—
Showing honor to their consorts
And the favors that they hold.


Sing of our great King of valor
Strong in war against An Tir—
Last to fall before their war host
His final charge still cost them dear.


Tell of how a Western squire
Faced the brave Trimaran Queen—
And bore Her home as royal hostage
Through the Pennsic woods of green.


Pass the cup filled by our brewers
As we share another tale—
And we’ll sing to them our praises
For their gifts of mead and ale.
