Proud Cynagua
by
Margrethe Astrid Ravn
January 30, AS XXXIII (1999)

Hail proud Cynagua! Bright your new year.
Your halls and your castles ring with good cheer;
your tables and side-boards are laid with the best,
and crowned stands Thomas, Knight of the West.
Dame Gwendolyn joins him to rule in your lands;
whose gifts, like rivers, flows forth from her hands.
Your brother and sister through me thus address you:
Hail proud Cynagua! Let nothing distress you....

'Till we meet in battle; and then, heavens help you.


Written at/for Cynagua Winter Investiture:

"Presentation to new Prince and Princess

"The Cynaguan bashing by the Mists is as overplayed as the Mists bashing by Cynagua. I wanted to try something a little different, especially since I knew Thomas and Gwen, and wanted to be nice to them ... mostly. Fortunately, this poked just enough fun to lead in with William's presentation to start a war.

"On a personal note, this sort of presentation always helps if you aren't upstaged by the King before you even start." -- Margrethe Astrid Ravn
