For William
by

May 15, AS XXXIV (1999)

Our little Billy went to war
     and returned, named a saint
a smiling lad with charm and grace
     who made the young girls faint
He won a wreath of ivy leaves
     and with it came the price
To rule with law and tradition
     and above all, be nice!
So Billy tried to rule just so
     to make all wrong things right
His efforts came to fruitful ends
     as King dubbed him knight
While Prince, he set his games aside
     put all his toys away
but now he's free to pull them out
     and run outside to play.


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
