For Maren
by
Margrethe Astrid Ravn
May 15, AS XXXIV (1999)

The Fire-bright flower commands
     with grace and dignity
Her subjects strive, succeed, uphold
     her model courtesy
With her firm hand and gentle word
     she guides, her passion strong
In council, hears, listens to all
     her laughter fills our song
All virtues in her smiling face
     made plain by her own deeds
are blessings upon her people's joy
     she cares for all our needs
For all rewards bestowed on us
     and all thrice-given fame
We freely give again our love
     and honor to your name.


Written for Mists Spring Investiture:

"Both the Prince and the Princess were so set in individual ways that I found it was easier to do a piece for each, rather than one for both. Maren, who had been Princess of Cynagua, brought a certain command and dignity; while William still acted like the young fighter many of us remembered him as." -- Margrethe Astrid Ravn
